Item of Interest

Eligibility for Office

The questions are sometimes asked, Should duties and offices in a branch church be entrusted to those members only who have had class instruction in Christian Science? Need Sunday School teachers, without exception, be class-taught? May a pupil of the Sunday School who has reached the age of twenty be appointed a worker in the Sunday School, perhaps as secretary or a teacher?

It is, of course, necessary that those who hold positions of trust shall have the status of experienced, working Christian Scientists who are demonstrating Mrs. Eddy's teachings. To this end class instruction is desirable, and even essential; but the individual Christian Scientist takes this practical instruction in the religion he loves when his own demonstration of Mind's guidance leads him to do so.
