A Lasting Gift

In the October, 1895, issue of The Christian Science Journal our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, under the caption, "What We Can Do for the Children," called upon loyal Christian Scientists "to organize immediately a Sunday School for the children." Consequently, it is important and required that each branch church and each society, whenever possible, establish and maintain a Sunday School for the spiritual education of the children.

In complying with Mrs. Eddy's request, the members of the branch are furnishing proof of their love for Christian Science. They are, at the same time, preparing the way for the future maintenance and progress of the branch. It may be said that the Sunday School is a gilt of love from the members of our branches to the children of the community.

The Sunday School is an integral part of the branch, and the metaphysical support on the part of each member is important. Nearly every community has its share of the millions of children who have no Sunday School affiliation. Through prayer and demonstration, our branches are finding ways of reaching these precious children. Many branches have proved that when the members include in their prayers the welfare of the children of the world, children of the neighborhood will find their way into the Sunday School. Thus the members are truly finding their own in another's good.
