We find ourselves back in the same situation as that which the Christians encountered during the decline of the ancient world. Everything depends on whether the Christians … are able to communicate their hope to a world in which man finds himself alone and helpless before the monstrous forces which have been created by man to serve his own ends but which have now escaped from his control and threaten to destroy him.
A decade ago Gil Bailie posted the above Dawson quote at the end of a blog entry on our old weblog. As with much of Gil’s older work, it is worth the time to take another look.
Communicating hope to our world is part of our work which we would not be able to continue were it not for those who find our work worthy of support.
Those who have supported our efforts materially over the past years are aware of how relevant Gil’s presentations from the past remain since they receive monthly complimentary downloadable MP3 audio files (or mailed CDs) of talks from the Cornerstone Forum Audio Archives. Recent materials included Gil’s Reflections on WH Auden’s poetry, and Shakespeare’s plays Julius Caesar and Troilus & Cressida. If you would like to receive these free monthly offerings please consider making a donation HERE on our website. Those supporting our work at the $60/year ($5/month) level receive a monthly emailed link to a free downloadable MP3 audio file, while our Sustaining Donors who are able to contribute $300/year ($25/month) may receive both the downloadable MP3 and a mailed CD.
Thank you for your interest in our work!
