CQOD: 08/25/07 -- Allshorn: the mystery

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 25, 2007
Commemoration of John Owen, spiritual writer, 1683
    Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world."
    -- Matthew 13:34,35 (NIV)

    Never was a book so full of incredible sayings—everywhere the sense of mystery dominates; unless you feel that mystery, all becomes prosaic—nothing about God is prosaic.
    ... Florence Allshorn (1887-1950), Notebooks [1957]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I bow before Your presence in Scripture.
