For your contemplation: “Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore, we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true and beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our standpoint; therefore we must be saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness,” Rienhold Niebuhr, “The Irony of American History,” l952.
St. Paul’s is located at 625 C St. on the edge of Eastern Washington University campus.
