Issue 507 – Faith and Prayer History

I do not wonder at the superstition of the ancient Magians who, in the morning of the world, went up to the hilltops of Central Asia and, ignorant of the true God, adored the most glorious work of His hand. But I am filled with amazement, when I am told that, in this enlightened age and in the heart of the Christian world, there are persons who can witness this daily manifestation of the power and wisdom of the Creator, and yet say in their hearts, “There is no God.“

– Edward Everett, Governor, Senator, president of Harvard, Inauguration of the Dudley Observatory, August 28, 1856
