Reverend Sidney Spencer (1888-1974)

 What mattered for him were not the dogmas of religion or its rituals or moral codes taken by themselves; what mattered fundamentally was the inner experience for which it stood.... ‘The end of all religions,’ he said, ‘is the realizing of God in the soul.’ That, I believe, is indeed the vital fact, to realize God in the soul, to enter into the consciousness of the Divine Presence, however we may express it so that that Supreme and Eternal reality becomes the ruling and guiding and inspiring power in our whole life.”
