Being and Doing – 20 April – Love

Being and Doing – 20 April – Love

CAN the last parting do much to hurt such friendships between good souls, who have so long learnt to say farewell, to love in absence, to trust through silence, and to have faith in re-union?


THOSE children of God to whom it has been granted to see each other face to face, and to hold communion together, and to feel the same spirit working in both, can never more be sundered, though the hills may lie between.   For their souls are enlarged for evermore by that union, and they bear one another about in their thoughts continually, as it were a new strength.


LET my voice be heard that asketh 

Not for fame, and not for glory;

Give, for all our life’s dear story, 

Give us Love, and give as Peace.



These quotes are from ‘Being and Doing’ A selection of helpful thoughts from various authors arranged for daily reading.

Collected by Constance M Whishaw and first published in 1908 for members of the Being and Doing Guild whose object is to do all they can for the relief of suffering and misery.

Most of the writers are 19th Century Christians from Britain and Europe who were committed to living their faith through deeds as well as words – Being AND Doing.

For many years these words have kept me company and encouraged me on the journey of faith.  I hope they will encourage others also.
