Excerpt from A Course of Sunday School Lessons on the Church Catechism Strange-looking men sometimes seen in the streets - dark skins - some black - queer dresses. What do we say they are? Foreigners. [Illustration: Exhibition in London. Men of different races there.] One man we call an Egyptian. Why? Comes from Egypt. [Persian, Arabian, Japanese. Where from?] These names tell us something about them. But different religions in the world as well as different nations. Some people called Buddhists. Why? Followers of Buddha. Some Mahommedans. Why? Called, you see, after the name of their master. So are we. Our name? Christians. Why? We are followers of - scholars of our Lord, Christ. I. A Little Christian. See when our Lord's followers first called by this name. Acts xi. 26. A sort of nickname at first - a name of ridicule. Yet now we are proud of it. [Illustration: Soldier or sailor - his uniform - his flag - proud of it - will not have it insulted. Why not? An insult to his Queen and country.] Christians have a King. Who? A flag. What? [Illustration: A large building - cross on the roof - we know it is a Christian temple - no cross on a Mahommedan mosque.] The Cross the Christian sign. (St. Matt. xvi. 24. 1 Cor. i. 18.) Are children Christians? - our scholars, even the infants? Why? Because their parents Christians? No. Better reason than that? Christians a large family.
