August 31

NO fable old, nor mythic lore,
Nor dream of bards and seers,
No dead fact stranded on the shores
Of the oblivious years;—

But warm, sweet, tender, even yet
A present help is He;
And faith has yet its Olivet,
And love its Galilee.
John G. Whittier

THE whole interests of the human race depend upon one question—the question of Belief; as again Belief is summed up in Christianity, and Christianity in Christ. He is for us the true Alpha and the true Omega. . . . Every measure and every movement in matters of religion, without any exception, ought to be tried by its tendency to bring mankind nearer to Christ, or to remove them further from Him.
William E. Gladstone

A RAY of heavenly light traversing human life, the message of Christ has been broken into a thousand rainbow colours, and carried in a thousand directions. It is the historical task of Christianity to assume with every succeeding age a fresh metamorphosis, and to be for ever spiritualizing more and more her understanding of the Christ and of salvation.
Henri F. Amiel
