Quote of the Week - George Herbert

17th century Anglican priest and poet
The humble soul compos’d of love and fear
Begins at home, and layes the burden there
When doctrines disagree.
He sayes, in things which use hath justly got
I am a scandal to the Church, and not
The Church is so to me.

George Herbert

From his poem Lent

Individuals need to accept the fact that when doctrines of the church appear to disagree, they (individuals) are at fault for this disagreement, not the the church.
