June the Twenty-Eighth the Waiting Light
2 CORINTHIANS iv. 1-6. I can shut out the sweet light of the morning. I can refuse to open the shutters and draw up the blinds. And I can shut out the Light of life.

These may be called the two natural springs out of which work for men and God proceeds. Out of these it comes as a direct necessity of nature.
