Universalist Quote of the Day #179

“While ignorant of God, we have him not.  The sabbath invites us to the study of his character, and therefore to the attainment of his knowledge, which will lead to love of him.  It invites us to the story of the common brotherhood of man, that we may love one another, and find that pure enjoyment which the faithful discharge of the kindly office of love cannot fail to impart.  In one word it invites us to the study and reception of the gospel, with all its sublime teachings,–concerning God, his character and will; concerning Christ, the object of his mission and the certainty of its fulfillment; concerning man, his nature, duties, and obligations, the relations he sustains to God, and his sure and certain ‘destiny in glory.'”

–Rev. Nathaniel Gunnison
