From back in mid-20th century Stewart and Mackintosh speak to us.
"God has committed to His Church – that is, to you and me – the possession of the gospel, the glorious tidings which are the lost world's only hope. Breathe on us, Breath of God! On us in the Church send resurrection: that the world may know that in Christ is life, and the life is the light of men!"
------- James Stewart, Scottish minister.
""I fancy that as we grow older, as we think longer and work harder and learn to sympathize more intelligently, the one thing we long to be able to pass on to men is a vast commanding sense of the grace of the Eternal. Compared with that, all else is but the small dust of the balance."
---------- Hugh R. Mackintosh, theologian
