From time to time questions are received as to the best procedures for following the Order of Exercises for the Sunday School on page 127 of the Manual of The Mother Church by Mrs. Eddy. These exercises should be followed exactly as set forth in the Manual. There is no rule on the wording to be used in the announcing of the hymns and on other steps in the exercises.

At No. 3 the Order of Exercises requires that the Golden Text be repeated by the children. Some superintendents, uncertain of the meaning here of the word "repeated," have thought that the Golden Text should be read by them before being repeated by the children. As the Manual does not stipulate that the text should be read first, this procedure should not be followed.
