Sunday School Notes and Comments

With their increased understanding gained from the study of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, older Sunday school pupils will find new inspiration in a review of the Ten Commandments. Rather than a mere reciting from memory, the review should consist of a searching study and a new application of their meaning to daily living.

Study of the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, for correlated statements, as well as the citing of various Bible stories to illustrate the Commandments, will reveal their practicability.

An enlightening method of relating the Commandments to the young pupils' study of Christian Science is to state their message in positive terms. Thus each one inspires obedience and results in consequent blessings. An example may be found on page 301 of Science and Health, where Mrs. Eddy paraphrases the First Commandment in positive terms, "Thou shalt have one God, one Mind." This procedure may be applied to all the Commandments, thus helping the pupil to think of them as affirmations of Truth.
