Quote of the Day (Frank Laubach, on the ‘Darker Hours’ When God Comes)

“There is a deep peace that grows out of illness and loneliness and a sense of failure. God cannot get close when everything is delightful. He seems to need these darker hours, these empty-hearted hours, to mean the most to people.”—Pioneer American linguist and missionary Frank Laubach (1884-1970), Feb. 6, 1931 letter, in Letters by a Modern Mystic, edited by Gina Brandon and Karen Friesen (originally published 1937, new edition 2007)
