The Christmas Story and the Children
[From a Sunday School Teacher]
Teachers in a Christian Science Sunday School learn from experience that on the Sunday preceding Christmas Day, they need to be especially well prepared to hold the attention of the pupils to the things of Spirit.
Taking this into consideration, one teacher who had been serving in the Sunday School for several years saw that although the children learn about Jesus and the Christ throughout the year, Christmas is the time when they would be most receptive to the beauty and sacredness of the Christmas story. In preparation the teacher studied the accounts of the Nativity in the New Testament and selected those passages from the different Gospels which give the story the most complete sequence. To emphasize the full import of the Gospel narrative, she planned to preface the story with verses from Isaiah (9:6, 7) which prophesy the coming of the Messiah. This would show the pupils that the advent of Jesus was in fulfillment of divine promise, which men who love God had awaited for centuries.
