Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

Is your rent in arrears?

The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not ‘to have and to hold’ but ‘to give and serve.’ There can be no other meaning.  – Wilfred Grenfell (1865-1940)

(Dr. Grenfell trained as a surgeon in London, was converted in 1887 under the preaching of Dwight L. Moody in London and dedicated his life to service as a medical missionary in Labrador and northern Newfoundland.)

I'd love to hear what you think about this. Please leave a comment.
