Gossip: the "good old days"

May 7, 2009

    [Paul:] "Then the Lord said to me, 'Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.'"
    -- Acts 22:21 (NIV)

    A century or so since, they spoke of sharing our Lord with the heathen, and the world rocked with laughter at so crazy a scheme, with the Church joining loudly in the merriment. Yet today, who laughs now? We ought to be the gladdest and the most exultant people in the world; for we have found the key to our difficulties, and it turns; have come on a solution of life’s problems, and it works.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), From the Edge of the Crowd [1924] (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word has gone out into the world with power.
