Universalist Quote of the Day #131

“Only one who could compass the whole register of the soul, measuring the heights of joy, and sounding the mysterious depths of grief, could translate into our human language the sublime messages, which since creation’s dawn have been telegraphed along a thousand lines of material communication, telephoned in the harmonies of nature, and wrought into the whole web of history.  Only such a one could gather up the fragments of truth scattered about the pathway of the nations, and so arrange and vivify them that they should satisfy the needs of the world.  Only Jesus has been able to interpret that word which was in the beginning with God.”

–Rev. Olympia Brown-Willis

Quoted in Voices of the Faith: A Birthday Book, ed. by J.W. Hans0n (Boston: Universalist Publishing House, 1887)
