"Rooted and grounded in love"

Writing to the church at Ephesus during his first imprisonment in Rome, Paul expressed the earnest hope that the little band of Christians in that locality, being "rooted and grounded in love," would be able "to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge." Centuries later, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, wrote in a poem entitled "The Oak on the Mountain's Summit" the tenderly prayerful words (Poems, p. 20):

"Faithful and patient be my life as thine;
As strong to wrestle with the storms of time;
As deeply rooted in a soil of love;
As grandly rising to the heavens above."
