The Opening And Closing Exercises
The Order of Exercises for the Sunday School of The Mother Church and of branch churches, given on page 127 of the Church Manual, is the valued provision of our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. She wisely provided for assembly exercises preceding and following the instruction in the classes. These opening and closing exercises are a part of the spiritual education of the Sunday School children, and as such they have an important place in each session. It is well, therefore, that the children learn to appreciate them so that no portion will be passed over lightly, but each step will be followed with interest.
The call to order by the superintendent is a loving summons to pupils, teachers, and officers to unite in thoughtful attention and joyous expectation. The exercises begin with a hymn. Children of whatever race or nationality, tiny tots happily taking their first steps in the understanding and application of Truth, and older boys and girls rejoicing in ever-unfolding views of God's goodness and love, unite in expressing in song their gratitude to the one Father-Mother God.
