A Great Vance Havner Quote — Narrowness!

11 Apr

“There is virtue in narrowness. A river spread over a marsh may be lovely to look at, and Sidney Lanier may write exquisite poetry about it, but if that river is to generate power it must be narrowed into a dam. We have spread out all over the place in our church life. We have sacrificed depth for width, and instead of a power dam, we have too often a stagnant swamp.” (Vance Havner)
