I ♥ the Bible Lesson
In May of 2009, over Memorial Day weekend, I had the opportunity to go to a DiscoveryBound youth gathering in Boston for teens who are Christian Scientists. While we were there, our group had Sunday School class in the original Mother Church building.
One of the teachers of the class welcomed us, and we started a discussion on the weekly Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson. She explained to us that the Lesson was like a gift. She then picked up a beautiful package off the floor. It had a gold bow and beautiful wrapping paper. She said that the golden bow was like the Golden Text of the Lesson and that the wrapping paper was like the Responsive Reading. Then she unwrapped the gift and revealed a shoe-size box. She went on to explain that the box represented the sections of the Lesson, and she proceeded to take the lid off. Inside was a wide assortment of lightbulbs–some small, some big, and all different shapes. The lightbulbs represented the many ideas that one would get out of the Bible Lesson. Our class also talked about how Mary Baker Eddy saw the Bible Lesson as a gift to mankind.
