Issue 500 – Faith and Prayer History

I believe the Scriptures because they repeat the warnings and promises of the Indwelling Light and Truth; I find in them the eternal precepts of the Divine Spirit declared and repeated. They testify of Christ within… My ground of hope for myself and for humanity is in the Divine fullness which was manifested in the life, teachings, and self-sacrifice of Christ. In the infinite mercy of God so revealed, and not on any work or merit of my own nature, I humbly, yet very hopefully, trust.

– John Greenleaf Whittier, American poet, around 1866
