Studdert Kennedy: Christ in a box

Sunday, March 8, 2015
    Commemoration of Geoffrey Anketell Studdert Kennedy, Priest, Poet, 1929
    [Jesus:] “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.”
    —Luke 12:49-51 (NIV)
    No body worries about Christ so long as He can be kept shut up in Churches. He is quite safe there, but there is always trouble if you try to let Him out.
    ... G. A. Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929), The Word and the Work, Longmans, Green, 1934, p. 66 (see the book)
    See also Luke 12:49-51; Matt. 10:34-36; Luke 22:36-38; John 18:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, the only safety is in You.
