Exercises for the Sunday School

Children love to be active, to do things. Their absorbed, undivided attention is given to that which works and to whatever is new to them, including ideas. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, was deeply concerned with the spiritual welfare of young students of Truth and made wise provision for their needs in the Manual of The Mother Church (p. 127), where she gives the order of exercises for all Christian Science Sunday Schools.

According to Webster's dictionary, "exercise" means "a setting in action; practice to acquire skill, knowledge, virtue, perfectness, etc." Through her spiritual vision Mrs. Eddy revealed the fact that the source of all real activity is in God, the all-acting Mind; that this Mind is not set in motion by human thinking, but is ever self-acting. She knew that children need to learn as soon as possible that they are in truth God's ideas, the reflection of Spirit, the expression of divine Love.
