Box 03-029 TO REV. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from The Teacher at Knox Church
Jan 6 1911 [approximate date]
To: Rev. Calvin McQuesten 449-9th Street Edmonton, Alberta
From: Calgary


On Sunday next, January 8th, we deal with;


Question 13. Is man helped in his struggle upward?

Answer. There is a Power in the Universe vastly beyond our comprehension; and we trust and believe that it is a Good and Loving Power, able and willing to help us and all creatures, and to guide us wisely, without detriment to our incipient freedom. This Loving kindness continually surrounds us; in it we live and have our real being; it is the mainspring of joy and love and beauty, and we call it the Grace of God. It sustains and enriches all worlds, and may take a multiplicity of forms, but it was specially manifested to dwellers on this planet in the life of Jesus Christ, through whose spirit and living influence the race of man hope to rise to heights at present inaccessible.

This brings us to Christianity. Up to this we have dealt with problems that are religious and fundamental, bur nor [sic] essentially Christian. Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, is the central and determining question. The true God, the unknown God, is made known to us men, adequately for our present life, in the Incarnate Christ, the historic Jesus. "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father".

A great many questions arise in connection with this conception of the Christ. We court the frankest discussion.

Yours truly.
