In the course of the centuries people everywhere have possessed a joyful, holy expectation of a time when justice and love will prevail. Often it is only a hidden longing for unity with others. Yet through every century runs the thread of this secret hope for a time when peace and justice will come, when the Eternal One will rule completely. There is no culture on earth that has not carried this hope deep in its heart.…And again thousands of years have passed, and here and there humankind has felt and received something of the mysterious radiance of his birth.- Eberhard Arnold

God is called, “I am Who I am. I am the unchangeable one. I am the one who remains. I am the one who always remains the same.” His will does not bend. He does not conform to certain things or certain people. And we shall experience this when we learn to listen to the Spirit, when we hearken to the wind that comes to us from God. So we shall be unanimous in silence. Meeting in silence, we shall hear the same voice and perceive the same truth. So unity comes into being, unity of heart and of voice, when we hear this voice and see this light.

The Son of Mary, God’s salvation, is the only One in whom the divine spirit of freedom, justice, and love finds its shape, unbroken and unhindered. Hence, the call to repentance never ends in pessimism, but rather in the certainty that the knowledge of God and the liberation from injustice must go deep and be far reaching.- Eberhard Arnold
The miracle of God comes not only from above. It also comes through us; it is also dwelling in us. It has been given to every person, and it lies within each one of us as something divine, and it waits. Calling to us, it waits for the hour when we shall open wide our hearts, having found our God and our home. When this is so, we will not hoard this miracle but will let it flow out into the world. Wherever love proceeds from us and becomes truth, the time is fulfilled and Christmas comes.- Eberhard Arnold
