Bayne: our club

Thursday, December 6, 2018
    Feast of Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, c.326
    Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
    —Hebrews 10:23 (NIV)
    The world will not be saved merely because people go to church, ours or any other’s. If we seem to say [that the world will be so saved] to the tormented nations, this is only a measure of our failure to see that the Anglican Communion is not an end in itself. And what an impertinence it is when we fail to see that... —when we seem to say to the world that their only hope is in the tepid conventions of our club.
    ... Stephen F. Bayne, Jr. (1908-1974), “The Challenge of the Frontiers: Organizing for Action (Theme Address),” included in Anglican Congress 1963: Report of Proceedings, Eugene Rathbone Fairweather, ed., Editorial Committee, Anglican Congress, 1963, p. 192 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 10:23; Mark 16:15-16; John 3:36; 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Cor. 3:11; Col. 1:22-23; 1 Tim. 2:5-6; 1 John 5:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make my heart place its hope in You and nothing less.
