Brooks: history

Thursday, September 22, 2011
    The apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon's Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number.
    —Acts 5:12-14 (NIV)
    All the world’s history is ecclesiastical history, is the story of the success and failure, the advance and hindrance of the ideal humanity, the Church of the living God.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893), The Light of the World, and Other Sermons, v. 5, New York: E. P. Dutton, 1890, p. 16 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help us see the true progress of history in the growth of Your church.
