Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or churches:

    And sometimes I remember days of old
    When fellowship seemed not so far to seek,
    And all the world and I seemed much less cold,
    And at the rainbow’s foot lay surely gold,
    And hope felt strong, and life itself not weak.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    By 1879, seven churches of various denominations were holding services, which led the local Chronicle to comment, “All have but one religion and one God in common; it is the Crucified Carbonate.”
