Quote of the Day

"He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, as of old, by the lake-side, He came to those men who knew Him not. He speaks to us the same word: "Follow thou me!" and sets us to the tasks which He has to fulfil for our time. He commands. And to those who obey Him, whether they be wise or simple, He will reveal Himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings which they shall pass through in His fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience Who He is"
Albert Schweitzer, The Quest for the Historical Jesus

Note: the compete text of Schweitzer's Quest can be found at Peter Kirby's Early Christian Writings.
