Questions by former CedarS Program Director, Steve Henn, C.S. steven.henn@gmail.com


POSSIBLE SUNDAY SCHOOL TOPICS (PSSTs) for the GOLDEN TEXT
“In the path of righteousness there is life, in walking its path there is no death.”
(Proverbs 12:28, NRSV)

 What is the path of righteousness?
How do we know that we are walking on it?
Consider Jesus’ teachings and how often he shares with his disciples what the Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven are like.
Is the path of righteousness itself a protection against death?
What must we do on this path?


POSSIBLE SUNDAY SCHOOL TOPICS (PSSTs) for the RESPONSIVE READING (RR):

What about Jesus’ message is most comforting?
What parts of the RR resonate with your students?
What works did Jesus do?
What works are you seeing or hearing about today, and what works are your students doing?

ACTIVITY: Each week, Christian Science Periodicals publish healings of all kinds on various platforms across multiple languages. Spend some time researching through those resources – https://jsh.christianscience.com/ – to find great works done by Christian Scientists across the world.
Bring examples of good works to your students each week, so they can see examples of Christ’s teaching in action. You can extend this activity by having your students keep a healing journal at Sunday School each week, and every time they come to Sunday School you can encourage them to write up the ways they either did or witnessed God’s goodness in action that week.
