From Our Exchanges

We need not so much a faith in a past resurrection, though our faith must be linked with history, and joined with an event which created Christianity out of the lacerated and marble contents of Joseph's tomb; nor so much a confidence that Jesus is to come by and by, necessary as is that to keep the hope serene: we need a faith in a Saviour who rises in us daily, is with us here and now, with words and spirit of life and treasures of immortality. With that consciousness of the presence of the living Master the gospel will cease to be a "tale of little meaning though the words are strong," our daily conduct will be spiritual: God's life the light of our consciences, perfect in joy and love. Then shall our Christian mysticism, our spiritual vision, our hidden and conquering strength, grandly meet the needs of to-day and go out with calmness and courage to welcome the problems and overcome the perils of to-morrow.

Even though Christ was made in the form of man, it is essential not to know his appearance or hold a fixed representation of him in thought, as it chains the mind to a limited conception forever. All worship and all ideas of divine things must be free from material representations that are devised to help, and prove to hamper struggling thought.
