FEBRUARY 3 2021 – “THIS SILENT BELL” – ARCHBISHOP SODERBLOM + “THE SILENT BELL” – ‘HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN’

Archbishop Nathan Soderblom

“Today, I chanced upon an episode of ‘Highway to Heaven’ on Amazon Prime Video – “The Silent Bell” starring Michael Landon – which reminded me of what the Swedish Archbishop Nathan Soderblom said of George Bell” [in a posthumous essay – 1931]:

“It is my opinion that nobody is more important to the future of the ecumenical revival than this silent Bell. This Bell never rings for nothing. But when it does ring its tune is silver-clear. It often seems to travel from another sphere and make itself heard. It reaches farther than our shouting voices. He never begins to speak without having something to say. The strong spirituality of his nature characterize everything he does”
