18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, December 28, 1913: Went to Sunday School this afternoon for this last time in this year. Would like to say “I haven’t missed any,” but I can’t. The missing amounts to two.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
I think that this Sunday School attendance pin is from the mid-1900s. Does anyone know if there were attendance pins a hundred years ago?
Don’t beat yourself up for missing two Sundays. I’m impressed that you made it to Sunday School for 50 of the 52 weeks in 1913.
