Surviving lockdown—thanks to Sunday School

Originally appeared online in the teen series: My church - March 23, 2021. 

Pandemic lockdown changed my life completely. It changed my outlook on day-to-day activities. Every day seemed like a monotonous routine, and I began feeling tired and dull. I never thought that attending Christian Science Sunday School via teleconference would be the one thing that would get me through and help redeem my perspective.

Of course, going to Sunday School during lockdown was different. Every Saturday, students in my Sunday School would be sent a set of questions based on that week’s Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly. We had never done this before, but I soon realized how helpful it was. These questions provided me with an opportunity to analyze the Lesson more thoroughly and apply it to my life. On Sundays, the questions were the basis for our class discussion and gave us an opportunity to share our inspiration as well as ask any questions of our own.

I began to feel more inspired.
