Priests of Creation

Of all the creatures both in sea and land
Only to Man Thou hast made known Thy ways,
And put the pen alone into his hand,
And made him Secretary of Thy praise.

–George Herbert (1593-1633), “Providence”


God’s Mercy Bestowed

“If you find me short in things, impute that to my love of brevity. If you find me besides the truth in anything, impute that to my infirmity. But if you find anything here that serves to your furtherance and joy of the faith, impute that to the mercy of God bestowed on you and me. Yours to serve you with what little I have.”

–John Bunyan (Works, 1:336)
