A Universalist Catechism

Prepared at the request of the Universalist General Convention by the General Sunday School Association

Truth
Our higest truths are but half-truths.
Think not to settle nown forever in any truth.
Make use of it as a tent in which to pass a summer night,
But build no house in it, or it will be your tomb.
When you find the old truth irksome and confining,
When you first have an inkling of its insufficiency
And begin to descry a dim counter-truth looming up beyond,
The weep not, but give thanks.
It is the Lord’s voice, whispering, “Take up thy bed and walk.”

Ernest Howard Crosby.
