Clark: our common task

Wednesday, March 2, 2016
    Feast of Chad, Abbot of Lastingham, Bishop of Lichfield, Missionary, 672
    Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
    —Galatians 6:2 (KJV)
    Whatever task God is calling us to, if it is yours, it is mine, and if it is mine, it is yours. We must do it together—or be cast aside together, as God in his absolute freedom goes on by other means to use His Church in hastening His Kingdom.
    ... Howard Hewlett Clark (1903-1983), Foreword to Anglican Congress 1963: Report of Proceedings, Eugene Rathbone Fairweather, ed., Editorial Committee, Anglican Congress, 1963, p. xiii (see the book)
    See also Gal. 6:2; Matt. 23:11; Mark 10:43-44; Rom. 12:4-5; 15:1; 1 Pet. 2:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me the heart of a servant.
