“The ship was safe when Christ was in her, though He was really asleep.  At present I can tell you good news, though you know it: He is wide awake, and his eyes are in every place. . . . [T]he ark is fixed upon an immovable foundation; and if we think we see it totter, it is owing to a swimming in our heads.  Seriously, the times look dark and stormy, and call for much circumspection and prayer; but let us not forget that we have an infallible Pilot, and that the power, and wisdom, and honour of God, are embarked with us.”

John Newton, to Rev. John Ryland, Jr. (July 31, 1773)
