Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 

(I Corinthians 13: 4)

Sunday School Class and Healing   Leave a comment

SingingI’m 19 and studying to become a cabinet and furniture maker and am taking a lot of wood shop classes.  I really enjoy this activity, and some days I’m at the shop for eight to ten hours at a time … About ten p.m., I was still working and was starting to get a little tired.  I accidently shot my had with a two-and-a-half-inch nail. …

While I was cleaning the wound, I was also thinking about the Christians Science Sunday School class I had been at earlier that day …

When I got up the next morning, there was hardly a mark on my hand where the nail had been.  I was able to spend the whole day back in the wood shop without any pain and without any limitation on my activities.  I am very grateful for the lessons I’m learning in Sunday School and for Christian Science.

Beginning Sunday School – A Mother Tells of Her Daughter’s Experience   Leave a comment

As a child, I had always loved Sunday School.  Yet when it was time for my daughter to move from the Children’s Room into her first Sunday School class, I was apprehensive.  I thought, “She can barely talk.  How is she going to learn about God?”  I really did not expect her to be able to sit for a whole hour and discuss metaphysical issues! … I thought she needed clever songs and furry Muppets to make learning “fun”.

As I thought about it, I realized that God was more important than anything else she could know, and why should I delay her spiritual and most important education?  I went ahead and enrolled her in Sunday School.

She’s been in Sunday School for a year and a half now, and I am happy, impressed, and comforted by all she has learned.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

(Psalms 139: 7-10)

Sunday School Student Tells of a Healing   Leave a comment

When I woke up one Sunday morning I had a sore tummy.  I thought it would go away after I had breakfast, but it didn’t.

When I went to Sunday School I listened and learned something good that helped me.  Then I felt a lot better.  On the way home I told my mother I had been healed and told her what I had thought – that God is good and that none of His children can be hurt.  In the afternoon I had lots of fun and forgot all about it.
