"The time will come when the Christian faith will have to fight for the right of way among crowding antagonists as vigorously as in the times of Athanasius and Augustine. And in thoughts like these all genuine Christians must rejoice. Without the call to high adventure, the faith has never flourished."
~Vida Scudder, 1912
(As cited in "A People History of Christianity," by Diana Butler Bass)
Mulling this over, friends.
