"Fishers of men" in the Sunday School

The altitude of modern youth toward Sunday School attendance differs little from that of the young people of yesteryears. As a general rule, the Sunday School pupil who has found a teacher that loves and understands the youthful thought needs little urging to appear regularly at his classes. In a letter to The Christian Science Board of Lectureship our inspired and inspiring Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes (The First Church of Christ. Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 248). "Spiritual heroes and prophets are they whose new-old birthright is to put an end to falsities in a wise way and to proclaim Truth so winningly that an honest, fervid affection for the race is found adequate for the emancipation of the race."

While these words of loving counsel were directed to the lecturers, they can be taken to heart by practitioners, nurses. Sunday School teachers, and all workers in our great movement. It is indeed not only the privilege but the duty of everyone who calls himself a Christian Scientist to proclaim winningly by thought, word, and example the Christ, Truth, which comes with healing in its wings. If one feels that he is not a winning missionary in this sacred work, he may with profit ponder the apostle's injunction (II Tim. 2: 15). "Study to shew thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
