Evolution teaches that the past belongs to us, a heritage infinitely rich and precious, and a stream that must flow on through the present into the future, to bless that future. If evolution means receiving from what has been, it also means contributing to what shall be. It means giving, and making ourselves willingly and joyfully a part of God’s eternal order. Evolution means a face set to the future, toward which we press with faith and high purpose. It means believing in some better thing, and forever some better thing, for religion, for humankind, for the world; believing in it so earnestly that we shall gladly make ourselves coworkers with God to bring the consummation.
