Underhill: here and now

May 1, 2009
    Feast of Philip & James, Apostles

    Consider [Jesus] who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
    -- Hebrews 12:3 (NIV)

    Christianity is a religion which concerns us as we are here and now, creatures of body and soul. We do not “follow the footsteps of his most holy life” by the exercise of a trained religious imagination, but by treading the firm, rough earth, up hill and down dale.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The School of Charity, Morehouse Publishing, 1991, p.52 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, cure my impatience with this long, slow work.
