Underhill: here and now

Saturday, June 15, 2019
    Feast of Evelyn Underhill, Mystical Writer, 1941
    Consider [Jesus] who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
    —Hebrews 12:3 (NIV)
    Christianity is a religion which concerns us as we are here and now, creatures of body and soul. We do not “follow the footsteps of his most holy life” by the exercise of a trained religious imagination, but by treading the firm, rough earth, up hill and down dale.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The School of Charity, New York: Longmans, Green, 1934, reprinted, Morehouse Publishing, 1991, p. 52 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 12:3; Matt. 5:23-24; 8:19-22; John 15:18-19; 2 Thess. 3:13; Heb. 3:1; 12:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, cure my impatience with this long, slow work.
