Kingsley: truth and chaos

Wednesday, November 25, 2015
    Commemoration of Katherine of Alexandria, Martyr, 4th century
    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
    —John 1:14 (NIV)
    There is a healthy ferment of mind in which one struggles through chaos and darkness, by means of a few clues and threads of light—and—of one great bright pathway, which I find more and more to be the only escape from infinite confusion and aberration, the only explanation of a thousand human mysteries—I mean the Incarnation of our Lord—the fact that there really is—a God-Man!
    ... Charles Kingsley (1819-1875), Daily Thoughts: Selected from the Writings of Charles Kingsley by His Wife, London: Macmillan and Company, 1888, p. 291 (see the book)
    See also John 1:14; Deut. 4:35; Isa. 9:2; Matt. 4:16; John 20:27; Eph. 5:8-10; 1 Pet. 2:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the only true God.
