Learning to Share Our Religion

[Of Special Interest to Juniors]

It was a lovely Sunday morning, and Jane decided to walk home from Sunday School so that she could be alone. She wanted to think about the discussion that had taken place in her Sunday School class. The teacher had told them about the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. The pupils were inspired by the story and by the monumental task Mrs. Eddy had undertaken in founding The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.

But Jane was troubled because the discussion had touched on a certain longing that was hers to do something great in her own life. Somehow she felt discouraged because it seemed to her that Mrs. Eddy had done the greatest thing for humanity since the time of Christ Jesus, and now there wasn't anything left in the way of accomplishments to compare with it.

Jane wondered why Mrs. Eddy had been appointed by God to do such a great thing. She decided to hurry home and talk it over with her parents. They were glad to talk to her about our Leader. They explained to her how gentle and loving she was and that she believed that all things are possible with God, even the repeating of the healing, which is recorded in Bible history.
