SEEKIG AFTER GOD BY LYMA ABBOTT ew York THOMAS Y. CROWELL ^ CO. PUBLISHERS Tbey seek the Lord, ifbapiy tbey might feel after bim, and find bim, though be be not far from every one of us ; for in bim we live, and move, and bave our being PREFACE I an interesting essay on America re- printed in " Littell's Living Age " for February 12, 19 10, G. Lowe Dickinson thus characterizes the American spirit : ^' In all this continent, I thought, in all the western world, there is not a human soul whose will seeks any peace at all, least of all the peace of God. All move, but about no centre ; they move on, to more power, to more wealth, to more motion. There is not one of them who conceives that he has a place, if only he could find it, a rank and order fitted to his nature, higher than some, lower than others, but right and the only right for him, his true position in the cosmic scheme, his ulti- mate relation to the Power whence it proceeds." There is truth in this description, but
 
the description is not the whole truth. [ vii ] Digitized by LjOOQIC PREFACE There are a great many Americans whom this paragraph aptly describes. They are seeking satisfaction, not in finding their right place, but in finding a higher or what they think is a better place. But it is not true that " there is not one of them who conceives that he has a place fitted to his nature, right and the only right for him." If this were true there would be no re- ligion in America ; for religion consists in seeking to find our true relation to God the centre of life, and so to our fellow-men. The object of this book is to help those who are, consciously or unconsciously, seeking for this centre and for their own true orbit and place, and so for peace, — the peace of God that passeth all understanding. The chapters of this book were origi- nally delivered as addresses at different times and without any purposed relation to each other. They are here brought together because a common theme con- nects them and a common spirit animates them. Their independent origin accounts for some repetitions, of thought if not of [ viii ] Digitized by LjOOQIC PREFACE
