Excerpt from Worship in the Sunday School: A Study in the Theory and Practice of Worship The problems of religious education are thrusting themselves as never before upon the attention of the American people. The Sunday school is coming to take its rightful place in the central stronghold of the church's life. Largely through the efficient campaigning of the Religious Education Association, the principles for the construction and teaching of Sunday-school curricula have been thoroughly overhauled and restated in accordance with modern educational ideas and practices. In the classes pupils are really being taught a great deal about the Bible, about the heroes of history, about the meaning of life, of religion, of Christianity, about right conduct in social relations. But the service of worship has t yet been taken up into this movement of criticism and reconstruction. It still stands detached, ineffective, contributing little or thing to the central purpose of religious education. It is therefore hoped that this short study of Worship in the Sunday School may serve at least to make clear the need of investigation and experiment in this field. The attempt is made to define the purpose of Sunday-school worship in terms of social relationships and attitudes.
