Myrtle Reid's down to earth wonderfully sensible approach to teaching Sunday school rings true throughout this collection of her best classes.
See excerpts below.
Like Sand in an Oyster, a Hurt Can Be a Precious Stone: Job was not the first man nor the last who was tempted to doubt the goodness of God because things went wrong with him.
Death--A New Beginning: What person, standing on the threshold of infinity, has not wondered what lies beyond the veil which which separates the seen from the unseen?
Now My Eyes Are Open: There on the sands of UZ, tortured by filth and pain, his soul in agony, Job learned the awe and wonder and faith makes him one of our mighty memories.
A Special Man, A Special Wish: A Special Christmas Tree: A long time ago, an event took place in a small village called Bethlehem. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born. His coming to Earth has altered 's awareness of who God is and what He calls man to be.
What happened to the other Nine?: Surely the three most important words in the religious vocabulary are "giving," "forgiving," and "thanksgiving," and the greatest of these is "thanksgiving" : all else proceeds. Why is it, then, that we are so reluctant to give thanks?
Accountability for All Words: Roaches--A Spot of Gravy: It is little wonder that Jesus chose to speak here about the terrible responsibility of words. The Scribes and Pharisees had just spoken the most terrible words. They had looked at the Son of God and had called Him the ally of the devil. So Jesus proceeded to "read them their rights" and laid down the laws in clear language they could understand.
Myrtle Reid began teaching Sunday School at the age of thirteen in the
First Presbyterian Church of Dunn, North Carolina. According to Myrtle
Reid, her initial responsibility was to "keep discipline more than anything
else." However, when one of the Junior Department's teachers dropped out,
Myrtle Reid took her class; the rest is history.
