From the March 1975 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Has your branch church been thinking of ways to strengthen its Sunday School? Many have made definite plans for doing so. As a consequence, some of our Sunday Schools are about to become, or have already become, more effective educational centers than before.

But giving the details of how these churches accomplished what they did might lead us to overlook the fact that each individual and each branch church is unique. One's road to accomplishment will seldom, if ever, be that taken by another, and what one decides to do has to begin with his own prayers. Human activities, it has been proved again and again, are successful in our churches only if they are preceded by deeply prayerful work and are the direct outcome of such work.

Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 1), "Prayer, watching, and working, combined with self-immolation, are God's gracious means for accomplishing whatever has been successfully done for the Christianization and health of mankind."
