JUST PASSING THROUGH (and John Wesley)
Stephen Grellet, a French born Quaker,
who died in New Jersey, 1855, gained
a little immortality by penning these
inspiring and challenging words...
“I shall pass through this world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do
or any kindness that I can show
to any human being, let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.”
And John Wesley wrote these simple
but profound lines...
"Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all times you can
To all people you can
As long as you ever can"
May it be said of us all...
They passed through this way...
