BARBARA LEARNS NOT TO BE AFRAID

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Barbara never romped and played with other children. Their games looked like so much fun, but Barbara preferred to stand off by herself and watch, for she was afraid—afraid of being hurt. She longed to join the other children when they coasted down the high, snow-covered hill on their sleds. If she could only get up the courage to coast down on her own sled, it would please her daddy very much, for he wanted his little girl to run and play and have fun as other children did, but Barbara trembled at the thought of it.

Then one Sunday Barbara's mommy and daddy attended a Christian Science church service for the first time. They liked it so much that they enrolled Barbara in the Sunday School. There Barbara learned that the Father-Mother God is Love, that He is everywhere, and that man cannot be separated from Him even for one moment, because He is man's Life. And how wonderful it was to learn that she was really God's own child, and that even though Mommy and Daddy were not always with her, her Father-Mother God would always be with His child.
