P. 17.)

Sunday School

 

Our Sunday School is provided for students up to the age of 20. Instruction, which includes the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus, is from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. Students are taught of God’s love for them and of the relevance of Jesus’ teachings to their lives.

Hymn selection ~Wednesday, October 28
 

Hymn 543

(Margaret Glenn Matters)

 

O Jesus, our dear Master,

Your works, now understood,

Reveal their full effulgence

Through love and brotherhood.

Today Christ’s precious Science

Your healing power makes plain:

With joy may all obey you

And cast out sin and pain.

 

The Christ, eternal manhood,

As God’s own Son beloved,

A tender ever-presence

Within each heart is proved.

O God, our Father-Mother,

Your name we see expressed

By man, who in Your Science

Is perfect, holy, blessed.

 

O Science, God-sent message

To tired humanity,

You are Love’s revelation

Of Truth that makes us free.

Your kingdom, God, within us

Shows forth Love’s sweet control.

God’s idea, man, rejoices;

We know the reign of Soul.

Hymn 459

(Simon Browne)

 

Come, gracious Spirit, heavenly Love,

With light and comfort from above;

Be Truth our guardian, Love our guide,

O’er every thought and step preside,

Be God our guide.

 

The light of Truth to us display,

That we may know and choose Your way;

Plant holy joy in every heart,

That we from You may ne’er depart,

Plant joy in every heart.

 

Lead us, O Christ, the living Way,

Nor let us from your precepts stray;

Lead us to God, our heavenly rest,

That we may be forever blest,

Forever blest.

Hymn 90

(William Williams)

 

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrim through this barren land:

I am Thine, and Thou art mighty,

Hold me with Thy powerful hand.

Bread of heaven! Bread of heaven!

Feed me now and evermore.

 

Open is the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing waters flow;

And the fiery cloudy pillar

Leads me all my journey through.

Strong Deliverer! Strong Deliverer!

Still Thou art my strength and shield.

Who are we, really?  You and I, and all humanity?  The health, harmony, and joy we experience in life depends on our answer to this question.

 

Mary Baker Eddy, who founded the Christian Science church, had a profound insight into the nature of God as infinite Love.  She perceived that God is the only substance, intelligence and Life of the universe, without the opposition typically ascribed to darkness or evil.  Moreover, Eddy realized that this was the basis of Jesus’ healing works.

To the degree that we understand our identity as purely spiritual — knowing that each of us shines, now and eternally, as a unique expression of infinite Love — we experience healing.  The result is wellness, opportunity, spiritual progress, and the highest degree of joy.
