CQOD: 12/20/06 -- Newman: the language of the heart

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 20, 2006
    For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything.
    -- 1 Thessalonians 1:8 (ESV)

    The heart is commonly reached, not through the reason, but through the imagination, by means of direct impressions, by the testimony of facts and events, by history, by description. Persons influence us, voices melt us, looks subdue us, deeds inflame us.
    ... John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You demonstrate Your love and presence to me daily.
