The State of City Church

With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this Calling
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time....
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well.
— T.S. Elliot, “Little Gidding,” from The Four Quartets

Matthew 13:45-46, 33
