On page 4 of "Pulpit and Press" in her dedicatory sermon our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, points to the cumulative effect of individual effort. Here she writes, "A single drop of water may help to hide the stars, or crown the tree with blossoms."

Christian Scientists throughout the Field are becoming more and more interested in the Sunday School work, and the result of their effort is shown in increased enrollment of pupils, more regularity in attendance, and improved teaching. One of the members of a society in a small midwestern town which had no Sunday School felt keenly that the teachings of Christian Science should be made available to the children of the community. Because of her great interest, she was asked to undertake the work of starting a Sunday School and was appointed superintendent. On the following Sunday she came to Sunday School with three children to be enrolled. In less than a year there were twelve pupils in the Sunday School and three teachers. From the time the Sunday School was started, the church attendance began to increase.
