The Teacher's Responsibility
Those who have received the rich blessings of Christian Science in their daily living are grateful that provision is made in the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy for the spiritual education of children. The consecrated Christian Scientist who is appointed to serve in the Sunday School accepts his work not only as a privilege, but also as a responsibility. He feels a keen interest in the pupils and endeavors in each case to discern the particular need.
A class may be made up of pupils in various states and stages of spiritual progress. There may be one who learns the letter of the lessons readily but needs to be shown how to apply the lessons in his daily activities, and the alert teacher watches for every opportunity to help this one to make the teaching practical. There may be another who has had little if any previous knowledge of Christian Science, and the teacher finds it a joy to show this one that he can begin at once to experience the great blessings which God has bestowed upon His children if he will be faithful in his study and will apply what he learns.
Whatever a child may seem to lack by reason of home training, parental example, environment, or in any other way, the teacher has every reason to know that the Sunday School lessons are equal to the need, and it becomes his responsibility to awaken the spiritual sense of the child and help him to become an active Christian Scientist.
