Sunday School teachers: getting down to business

From the March 1988 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Sunday School classes that are truly inspiring—full of spark, with everyone engaged, interested, and giving—aren't just ideal rarities. They may not happen as often as we'd like, but when they do they tell us something about what is really natural and normal, what we can expect, considering the impact Christian Science has on our lives.

How do we have more of this normal exchange in our classes? Maybe you—like some of the rest of us— have just one or two pupils, who have very telling facial expressions: "I've already said 'forget it' to the whole idea of being here," they may seem to say.

We can't just ignore human feelings, as misguided as they might be. Nor can we afford simply to give in to them—any more than we would willingly make way for the mindlessness of animal magnetism, and sleep through the main event that is Life itself!
