Sunday School Notes and Comments

One Christian Science Sunday School teacher is learning to be willing to receive from the pupils, who have much to offer. The pupil who is an earnest student of Christian Science should be encouraged to share with other members of the class the spiritual wealth he or she may gain. The teacher referred to has learned in her Sunday school work to encourage the pupils to speak of their own experiences, discuss Christian Science in the class, and to ask and answer questions. She has often given much thought to portions of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings and has been grateful for consequent unfoldment. However, she has often received further illumination on the same passages from some thought expressed later by one or more of her Sunday school pupils.

The members of a Christian Science Sunday School class of high school boys, who are studying the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, are asked to write briefly at home the main point in each section, and then in class to show how it relates to the subject of the Lesson for that week. On Sunday morning each section is also briefly discussed. The discussion is supported by reading certain citations from the Lesson. The result has been increased interest in the Lesson, and now most of the boys come well prepared. This procedure has made it necessary for the teacher to study the Lesson still more carefully.

It has been found that pupils enjoy having a question to consider for the week, which they come prepared to answer on Sunday morning. The question, "Why must we be obedient to the law of God in order to be successful and satisfied?" gave one class an opportunity to discuss not only many qualities, such as obedience, honesty, wisdom, and justice, but also the righteousness of the law of God and the unerring reward of obedience thereto.
