To This Great Stage of Fools: Born November 12th

'Richard Baxter' photo (c) 2011, Skara kommun - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/Richard Baxter, b. 1615. Puritan preacher, he wrote over 140 books of sermons, devotions, and instruction. Baxter is the author of this famous dictum on Christian unity:

In necessary things, unity; in doubtful things, liberty; in all things, charity.

Let’s thank God today for Richard Baxter and all his fellow Puritans. They may have sometimes lapsed into legalism, but at their best they were passionate followers of Jesus Christ, dedicated to Christian unity, Christian liberty, and Christian charity.
