Food for Thought from William Ewart Gladstone

“He was asked if he had observed the singular absence of the sense of sin in the works of American divines of all schools. ‘ Ah,’ said he slowly, ‘ the sense of sin — that is the great want in modern life ; it is wanting in our sermons, wanting everywhere ! ‘ This was said slowly and reflectively, almost like a monologue.

–Lionel Arthur Tollemach, Talks with Mr. Gladstone (London: Edward Arnold, 1903), p.96

A Prayer to Begin the Day from Arthur W Robinson

O Eternal God, the fountain of all wisdom and the giver of all grace, who didst send thy Spirit to dwell with our fathers and to lead them into the way of truth: Grant to us that in all our difficulties and dangers we also may be enabled, by the light and power of the same Spirit, to know thy mind and to do thy will, for the glory of thy name and the benefit of thy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

–Frederick B. Macnutt, The prayer manual for private devotions or public use on divers occasions: Compiled from all sources ancient, medieval, and modern (A.R. Mowbray, 1951)
