Quotes from this episode:

“Give and it shall be given you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over shall men give into your bosom.” ~Luke 6:37, Holy Bible

“[God] can’t use ivory-tower followers. They’re plaster of paris, they crumble and fall apart in life’s press.  So you’ve got to see life the way it really is before you can do anything about it.” ~Miss Alice

“You see, Christy, evil is real-and powerful. It has to be fought, not explained away, not fled. And God is against evil all the way.  So each of us has to decide where we stand, how we’re going to live our lives.  We can try to persuade ourselves that evil doesn’t exist; live for ourselves and wink at evil.  We can say that it isn’t so bad after all, maybe even try to call it fun by clothing it in silks and velvets.  We can compromise with it, keep quiet about it and say it’s none of our business.  Or we can work on God’s side, listen for His orders on strategy against the evil, no matter how horrible it is, and know that He can transform it.” ~Miss Alice

“If you don’t do the work that’s been given you to do, that work may never be done.” ~Miss Alice

“Dear God, when I came here, maybe I was partly running off from home for fun and freedom and adventure.  But I have a notion that You had something else in mind in letting me come.  Anyway if You can use me here in this Cove, well, here I am.”  ~Christy

“Lord, Miss Alice said that ‘if we give, it shall be given unto us.’  Well, she is giving, Lord. And so are Dr. Ferrand and David.  And even I’m trying to give, though I don’t yet see what I have that You can use.  I don’t have the faith that Miss Alice has, Lord, in You, in this Book, in anything.  Can you help me with my faith?” ~ Christy
