Sunday School Notes and Comments

What a deep meaning there is for us in the words "Sunday school"! Understanding their import, we catch a glimpse of the vision, the great love which our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, had for young people.

Among many interesting discussions in a class of boys, sixteen and seventeen years of agem the following example shows what may unfold if an opportuity is given. The question was presented, "Wouldn't it be interesting to have each one tell the part of Jesus' work which has impressed him most?" The replies showed deep thought, and these points were brought out: that in Jesus' work results were immediate; that in dealing with all the different people and their troubles, he knew how to meet their need; he could and did destroy fear, disease, death. The wonder and the respect which these boys showed for the Way-shower, who worked so effectually, were beautiful and inspiring.

In serving as superintendent of the Sunday school, and in viewing the work in a general way, I saw that the pupils always respond to two qualities in the teacher: a high regard and appreciation for the privilege of teaching, and joy in serving. Moreover, though they may not analyze their impressions, they are very quick to detect a burdened attitude. How important it is that appreciation for the privilege of working in this great movement should be accompanied by the evidence of joy in the work which is undertaken!
