A Quote by Allen E. Claxton, DD on brothers, civilization, cooperation, dependence, earth, god, justice, mercy, nature, peace, truth, world, and worship

God has a plan of justice, mercy, truth, cooperation and brotherhood which will bring peace upon this earth. As we worship God these qualities become part of our nature and we become fit inhabitants of the world God created. Human beings should worship God not alone to show their allegiance and dependence upon their Creator, but to absorb from Him the essential qualities of a permanent civilization.

A Quote by Alice Hansche Mortenson on doubt, eternity, faith, god, impossibility, justice, life, trust, and path

Doubt cries, "It is impossible! You can't, you can't go on!" Faith softly whispers, "Yes, you can. Just trust in God. Be Calm." Doubt cries, "Look down! Your path is steep And rough with stones and briar!" Faith gently says, "I'll take your hand. It's beautiful up higher." Doubt has not one thing to give But "going back" alone; Faith has God, eternal life, And heirship to a throne! And so, on unseen eagle's wings, These feet of clay are borne. While faith within me sings and sings, We rise above the storm!
