Universalist Quote of the Day #180

“Christ will still remain the most perfect spiritual example of man’s nature, permanently uplifted above the horizon of history until obscured by the greater light of some more august personality.  And, till such personality appears, there is no danger of the decay and supersedure of the ministry and church, for want of a field and of ideas, with the certainty of a harvest of increasing good to mankind.  Though all formulated creeds be driven to radical changes, the nature of man and the universal ideas of Christ remain.  From these creeds a vaster growth and power will spring, and the ministry and church will take a still more beneficent, inevitable, and commanding part in educating and edifying the mental and moral life of the world.”

–Rev. Richmond Fisk
