Gossip: the "good old days"

Sunday, May 26, 2019
    Feast of Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury, 605
    Commemoration of Arthur John Gossip, Spiritual Writer, 1954
    [Paul:] “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’”
    —Acts 22:21 (NIV)
    A century since or so, they spoke of sharing our Lord with the heathen, and the world rocked with laughter at so crazy a scheme, with the Church joining loudly in the merriment. Yet today, who laughs now? We ought to be the gladdest and the most exultant people in the world; for we have found the key to our difficulties, and it turns; have come on a solution of life’s problems, and it works.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), From the Edge of the Crowd, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1924, p. 38 (see the book)
    See also Acts 22:21; Gen. 12:1-3; Hos. 8:1; Acts 9:15; 13:46-47; Rom. 1:5; Gal. 2:7-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word has gone out into the world with power.
