Beach: the common currency

Monday, December 3, 2018
    Commemoration of Francis Xavier, Apostle of the Indies, Missionary, 1552
    They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
    —2 Timothy 4:4 (NIV)
    It is a rare campus indeed where the Christian universe of discourse is the shared basis of allegiance and the common currency of intellectual exchange. More likely, the Christian faith is an archaic facade, a bit of Victorian fretwork on the front of the house, of which polite note is made at Commencement, but not the common premise of teaching and research and learning.
    ... W. Waldo Beach (1916-2000), “Where Do We Meet?”
    See also 2 Tim. 4:4; Prov. 1:32; Zech. 7:11; Acts 7:57-58; 2 Tim. 3:1-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Let the world know, Lord, that all truth is Your truth.
