"The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord"

In Christ we may say, then, that we see what life in its full range of diviner possibilities really means. Here at the headwaters of our faith we find one Life in which divinity and humanity are unsundered, one life which reveals equally the nature of God and the possibilities of man. We may say with an early Christian writer that the eternal Christ is forever being born anew in the hearts of those who believe and just as certainly we may say that the spirit of man is continually proving to be "a candle of the Lord."
