The Worship Quote of the Week for (08/28/2001):

Nowhere Else to Go
Have you ever viewed prayer primarily as a desperate cry to God in times of
trouble? Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is from the 19th-century British author George
MacDonald, and offers a sobering contrast between our perspective and Godís.

How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to him
because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of
life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven.
ó George MacDonald (1824-1905)

[Iíve seen this quote in numerous places but have never seen the full
citation. Does anyone know where he wrote this?]

[C. S. Lewis said of George MacDonald, "I have never concealed the fact that
I regarded him as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in
which I did not quote from him." Makes a person want to go to the library.

Hope youíre in the haven.
Have a great week.
