Signs of the Times

TOPIC: STRESSING SPIRITUAL VALUES

[From Life and Work, Edinburgh, Scotland]

When Zinzendorf (the leader of the Moravian Brotherhood in the eighteenth century) was still a schoolboy, he conceived the idea of founding a new religious order, to be called the Order of the Mustard Seed. Its members were not to retire to a monastery, but were to endeavor to live the Christian life among men in such a way as to extend Christ's kingdom by the quiet, continuous method of the mustard seed. The badge of the order was to be a gold ring, on the inner side of which were engraved St. Paul's words, "None of us liveth to himself." If the idea sounds priggish, we can save it from priggery by remembering that not any one group, but the whole Christian church (which means ourselves), ought to be the Order of the Mustard Seed.
