Studdert Kennedy: the meaning of history

Friday, March 8, 2024
    Commemoration of Geoffrey Anketell Studdert Kennedy, Priest, Poet, 1929
    [Jesus:] “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
    —Mark 10:45 (NIV)
    In the Cross, God gathers up all history into a movement of time, and shows to us the meaning of it. It is the act in time which reveals to us the eternal activity of suffering and redeeming love all down the ages.
    ... G. A. Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929), The Hardest Part, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1919, p. 62 (see the book)
    See also Mark 10:45; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; Gal. 2:20; 1 Tim. 2:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have rescued me from certain destruction.
