Drury: the style and content of churches

Saturday, November 27, 2010
    Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
    —Proverbs 3:34 (KJV)
    We are building many splendid churches in this country, but we are not providing leaders to run them. I would rather have a wooden church with a splendid parson, than a splendid church with a wooden parson.
    ... Samuel Smith Drury (1878-1938), included in Leaves of Gold, Evan S. Coslett & Clyde Francis Lytle, ed. [1948], Honesdale, Pa.: Coslett Publishing Company, 1938, p. 62 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are sovereign over our strength and fortunes.
