Have pupils spend 90 seconds listening & then share angel messages they heard.]

Possible Sunday School Topics
by Merrill Boudreaux, CS, for the

Christian Science Bible Lesson: God – June 30 – July 6, 2014

P.S.S.T.  Golden Text – Good is another name for God, and since God is with you everywhere you go, therefore Good is with you wherever you go.  Can you ever be separated from Good, God?  See Romans 8:35,37-39..

[Is this correct logic?  Is good everywhere b/c God is everywhere?]

P.S.S.T.  Responsive Reading – Who are some mentioned in the Responsive Reading that God is aware of and cares for:  fatherless, widows, solitary, bound with chains (perhaps slaves or those in captivity like the girls in Nigeria), charioteers or those behind the wheels of vehicles today.  Is this a hint for those whom we should provide care?  Is there a service project your Sunday School class can perform?

     Ask students to write a one-sentence Prayer of Gratitude for God as Presence.

P.S.S.T.  Section 1 – What is God thinking about you right now? (B5)  You would have to conclude, then, that God knows you and cares about you.

P.S.S.T.  Section 2 – God is not anthropomorphic.  Help students define that word (See also citation S8 or S9).  Ask students to select three words that define God to them, outside of the seven prominent synonyms Mary Baker Eddy mentions as also found in the Bible.  Now ask students to select three qualities that define themselves as reflections, expressions of God.

P.S.S.T.  Section 3 – Again, can you ever be separated from God? (B11)  What is the central message in the Bible story in citation B12? (I am with you.  I will never leave you.)

     Ask students to memorize citation S14.  Ask students to spend ninety seconds quietly listening, then share what angel messages they heard.  Perhaps they would like to begin their listening with a question for God.

P.S.S.T.  Section 4 – Are you an apostle, a disciple of Christ?

     What is the prayer Jesus gave to his apostles, disciples, when they asked him to teach them to pray?  B15, B16, B17.  Mary Baker Eddy refers to this prayer as the one that covers every human need.  See Science & Health 16:7-11.  Affirm for students that this prayer, The Lord’s Prayer, is one they can go to when they don’t know what else to do or even how to begin to pray.  What hint is provided in S20 about how to prepare to pray?  If you ask for bread, will God give you a stone?  See Matthew 7:7-12.  Therefore, ask on!

P.S.S.T.  Section 5 – Where do you suppose the “secret place of the Most High” is?  What shall always accompany you in this secret place?  Angels.

     Read aloud together the story in B20.  What did the angels do for Peter?  Just like Peter, can your rights ever be removed from you?  Can these rights ever be removed from anyone, like the girls in Nigeria?  Ask students to write a Christian Science prayer treatment on behalf of these Nigerian girls being held captive.  Seek angels to aid your prayer.

P.S.S.T.  Section 6 – Read all of Malachi 2:10 as referenced in B22.  It is our right to annul treachery of any kind.  See S27 and S28 for this affirmation.  One God, Infinite, Ever-Present, Good, is your sufficiency to pray on behalf of all mankind.  Memorize citation S28.  So if Good is another name for God, then Good exists here, now, everywhere, and for everyone.

Read aloud together Hymn 258 from the Christian Science Hymnal.
