Our Guide Through the Shadows

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson: Pen name: Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) – English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer; Author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, and poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark.

“I believe that when you and I come to lie down for the last time, if only we can keep firm hold of the great truths Christ taught us—our own utter worthlessness and His infinite worth; and that He has brought us back to our one Father, and made us His brethren, and so brethren to one another—we shall have all we need to guide us through the shadows. Most assuredly I accept to the full the doctrines you refer to—that Christ died to save us, that we have no other way of salvation open to us but through His death, and that it is by faith in Him, and through no merit of ours, that we are reconciled to God; and most assuredly I can cordially say, "I owe all to Him who loved me, and died on the Cross of Calvary."— Carroll, (1897)

Very thought provoking Gregg though a wee bit mormid for me as I don't feel too good.
