I want to post this quote from author George MacDonald from his book “Thomas Wingfold, Curate” which absolutly left me dumbstruck today after reading it in Ron Blocks and Andrew Petersons wonderful posts over at the rabbit room.  I don’t think it’s simple coinsedence that the characters name is Mr. Drew.  Here it is:

“‘Mr. Drew, your shop is the temple of your service where the Lord Christ, the only image of the Father, is, or ought to be, throned; your counter is, or ought to be, his altar; and everything thereon laid, with intent of doing as well as you can for your neighbor, in the name of the man Christ Jesus, is a true sacrifice offered to him, a service done to the eternal creating Love of the universe.

Quite wonderful isn’t it.  Needless to say, “Thomas Wingfold, Curate” along with other MacDonald books will be on my wishlist!
