Voices of the Day: Paul and Augustine

“In him [God] we live and move and have our being.”

— Paul the Apostle (Acts 17.28, NRSV)


“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”

— Augustine of Hippo (Confessions)

Until I was preparing for the sermon last week, it never occurred to me how naturally the quote from Augustine flows from the content of Paul’s sermon on the Areopoagus.
