Thomas Kelly on evangelism

Too long we have supposed that we must carry the banner of religion, that is was our concern. But religion is not our concern; it is God's concern. Our task is to call people to "be still, and know that I am God," to hearken to that of God within them, to invite, to unclasp the clenched fists of self-resolution, to be pliant in His firm guidance, sensitive to the inflections of the inner voice.

- Thomas Kelly, August 1938, from 'Excerpts from the Richard Cary Lecture' in The Eternal Promise
