Sunday School Notes and Comments

To those just becoming interested in its teaching, Christian Science presents a new concept of the universe—"a new heaven and a new earth." This is particularly true of young people entering the Christian Science Sunday School, who also find themselves confronted with familiar words, presenting a wonderful new meaning. In the third chapter of Zephaniah we are given this promise: "Then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent."

One of the most important steps in teaching a different language is to get the students to think in that language. They can be taught the grammar and memorize a vocabulary, but they never become proficient in its use until they learn to think in terms of the language.

How can we teach our Sunday school pupils to think in terms of Spirit? If they are to think in terms of this new view of existence—the spiritual—they must begin to obtain knowledge of the facts of real being. Where are these to be found? As they find the facts of any science, such as mathematics or chemistry, in the textbooks on the subjects, so they will find the facts of being as revealed in Christian Science by studying the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. In classwork, one way of studying the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly is to look for statements of facts.
