“We cherish the gift of historic faith and order not as walls of an enclosed fortress but as gifts of God which both witness to the past and serve the building of a future as yet unrealized. By thus combining the historical and futuristic notes in our understanding of the Church, we may be helped in our efforts to combine a loyalty to tradition with a sensitivity to contemporary movements.
“If this is a difficult adventure, it is not one which need endanger our souls. Rather might our souls be endangered if we were content either to rest in past tradition undisturbed or to share in contemporary enthusiasms without relation to the stream of Christian witness through the ages.”
--Michael Ramsey (1904-1988)
