CQOD: 07/25/06 -- Underhill: the spiritual life

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 25, 2006
Feast of James the Apostle
    In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
    -- 1 John 4:9-10 (ESV)

    The spiritual life is a stern choice. It is not a consoling retreat from the difficulties of existence, but an invitation to enter fully into that difficult existence, and there apply the Charity of God, and bear the cost.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remove my impulse to retreat, and show me how to engage with the world.
