Windham Churches Quotes
The Church of England should no longer be satisfied to represent only the Conservative Party at prayer. -Royden, (Agnes) Maude
In my dreams is a country where the State is the Church and the Church the people: three in one and one in three. It is a commonwealth in which work is play and play is life: three in one and one in three. It is a temple in which the priest is the worshipper and the worshipper the worshipped: three in one and one in three. It is a godhead in which all life is human and all humanity divine: three in one and one in three. It is, in short, the dream of a madman. -Shaw, George Bernard
She came to the village church, And sat by a pillar alone; An angel watching an urn Wept over her, carved in stone. -Tennyson
I believe in the Church, one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church; and nowhere does it exist. -Temple, William

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell;The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost;The holy Catholick Church;The Communion of Saints;The Forgiveness of sins;The Resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting. Amen. -Book of Common Prayer
