If my grand father had a blog

The Cross

It is only at the foot of the cross we see ourselves, the world, and God in the true light ... There alone can we form true impressions ... and how far short they still fall of the reality!
-Hudson Taylor June 1855

I'm reading a book on Hudson Taylor's life (see previous entry) that I got from my grand parents. The above section of one of Hudson Taylor's letters was underlined with the word cross jotted in the margin. My grand father passed away about seven years ago. Seeing that this passage stood out to him, it felt like hearing from him.
