“There is no safety in this present time of transition and of changing form and expression to be found by closing the eyes or hiding the head in the sand, as the ostrich is said to do. The only safe and sure course is to reach through the outward and find the eternal, to rest back upon the everlasting arms, to have a personal initiation into the riches of the glory of this ‘mystery’ ‘which is Christ in you, the hope of glory’ [Colossians 1:27], to get free in the living truth. The things which we see are temporal, the things which the spiritual vision finds real are eternal.”

 – Rufus Jones, Practical Christianity, Second Edition, 1905
