Walter Rauschenbusch Quote from “A Theology for the Social Gospel” (1917)

“One of the greatest tasks in religious education reserved for the social gospel is to spread in society a sense of the solidarity of successive generations and a sense of responsibility for those who are to come after us and whom we are now outfitting with the fundamental conditions of existence.”

Walter Rauschenbusch, A Theology for the Social Gospel, (Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 1997 reprint), 43.
