SUNDAY MORNING AND AFTERNOON.
SELECTED FROM THE SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION
LIST OF SCRIPTURE LESSONS.
The Lessons for the Afternoon form the International Serisse which
are now used simultaneously in America, on Continent of
SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION,
It is with much pleasure that the Committee of the Sunday School Union note the gratifying fact that The UNITORM LESSON SYSTEM which they have been constantly advocating for so long a period is becoming generally adopted.
By the present arrangement, the same Lesson-The International will be under the consideration of teachers and scholars all over the world, simultaneously. The Committee in London, in concert with that of America, have selected a course which, during one part of the day, will thus bring the schools of America into union with those of England, Canada, Australia, and the Continent of Europe.
The selection for the Elementary classes contains, in addition to the Scripture portion, THE GOLDEN TEXT—so called because it contains the central truth of the lesson—which should be committed to memory by the scholars.
The advantages of the system consist partly in this, that while the Scripture classes are reading the appointed lesson from the Bible, and the Infant class is being taught the text selected from that lesson by means of the Letter-box," or Infant Class Texts, the intermediate classes can be occupied upon the same subject by means of this little book, or by the detached single leaves, each of which contains one Sunday's portion, and may be taken home by the scholars at the close of the day. By these means
I. Every teacher can join in a definite plan, and make the teaching consecutive and systematic.
II. All the classes in the school will be “Scripture classes."
III. The Notes on the Lessons, and the various illustrations and hints supplied in the magazines and the Sunday School Chronicle, will be available for all; and where a preparation class exists, every teacher in the school, being engaged upon the same lesson, will have an equal interest in regularly attending that class.
