The Time of Testing

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded 1970

(Exact year unknown, circa 1961-1971)

"Sooner or later you and I will come to the place where, through the depth of the testing and trying of our faith, the circumstances into which we are plunged, the seeming eclipse of all that has been so glorious in the past, we’ll wonder if things have been real at all, whether our experience has been real, a sense of the unreality of everything comes over us. Do you know anything about that? It seems to have all faded out, gone into darkness. Where are we? The time of the testing."
