Excerpt from From Strength to Strength: Three Sermons on Stages in a Consecrated Life Probably it has never before fallen to the lot of any one to endeavour to give expression under the most solemn circumstances to thoughts suggested by three great crises in the life of a friend, for death is for the Christian a crisis in life. As each occasion came I sought to say what the occasion itself told us through him, whom we loved, of the office with which he was charged, of the society which he served, of the character by which the servant of God is enabled to do his work; and in each region the description of the Christian life and the Christian Faith seemed to find a fresh fulfilment: From strength to strength.
