A Quote by Florence Allshorn on character, church, experience, familiarity, god, humility, ideas, jesus, life, pride, quality, reality, relationships, and trying

We know so well what the unique quality was that held this great and beautiful pride and exquisite humility together. It lay in the relationship he held with God. We know the familiar idea of Jesus' oneness with God: only we deal with it too much as a doctrine of the Church, not as an element in Jesus' own experience. If we never find it in reality, in life, we cannot reveal the true Christlike character at all - we will always be trying earnestly to be something, but on too superficial and obvious a plane.
