For Sunday

155. The Way
"Christ is the way out, and the way in: the way from slavery, conscious or unconscious, into liberty; the way fro the unhomeliness of things to the home we desire but do not know; the way from the stormy skirts of the Father's garments to the peace of His bosom."
second series, Self-Denial
George MacDonald: An Anthology by C.S. Lewis
p. 88

I didn't know MacDonald wrote that -- that Christ was the way from the unhomeliness of things to the home we desire but do not know -- but it reminds me now of those wonderful lines from Auden: "He is the truth. Seek him in the Kingdom of Anxiety. You will come to a great city that has expected your return for years."

Many people don't know that George MacDonald was Anglican. After leaving the Congregational ministry he joined the Church of England under the ministry of Frederick Denison Maurice around 1860. Nearly all his work was written after this "conversion".
