Both systems hold that man is not to live for himself, if he would live forever. Both are torn from their root, in the truth and in the cross, if they forget this inmost law of the kingdom, which is the liberty of Christ. In the acceptance of this radical principle of self-renunciation the great divergent parties of Grace and Service may be rec-onciled.
