Sunday School Observations

Teaching the Primary Classes

Questions occasionally arise regarding the teaching of the primary classes in the Sunday school, where children as young as two and three years of age are enrolled. A question sometimes asked is. "Can a two or three-year-old child understand spiritual truth?"

A child is never too young to be impressed with spiritual truth. The devout Hannah must have recognized this, for she so educated the infant Samuel that at the age of three he was ready to be left at the temple in Shiloh, there to be taught by the high priest Eli. Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, pointed to the receptivity of the budding thought when she wrote in the Christian Science textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 61), "The offspring of heavenly-minded parents inherit more intellect, better balanced minds, and sounder constitutions."
