pathway

pathway
Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
M
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

Real Christianity consists in

Purity,

Justice,

Contentment,

Self-command,

Philanthropy,

and a Faith which produces a sublime disregard

of human events.


~Thomas Dudley Fosbrooke,

Vicar of Walford, 1843


"... a sublime disregard of human events."


A noble thought for the day from the good Vicar!
