CQOD: 01/26/08 -- Sayers: Christian principles without Christ

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 26, 2008
Feast of Timothy and Titus, Companions of Paul
Commemoration of Dorothy Kerin, Founder of the Burrswood Healing Community, 1963
    Then [Jesus] went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and on the Sabbath began to teach the people. They were amazed at his teaching, because his message had authority.
    -- Luke 4:31,32 (NIV)

    That you cannot have Christian principles without Christ is becoming increasingly clear [in the world today], because their validity as principles depends on Christ’s authority.
    ... Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957), lecture [1940], in The Whimsical Christian: 18 Essays, Macmillan, 1978, p. 38

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from leaning on my own understanding but to see Christ behind everything.
