BeschreibungExcerpt from On the Height: Five Sermons, Delivered on New Year's Eve and Morning, September 21st and 22nd; On the Eve, Morning and Evening of the Day of Atonement, October 1st and 2nd, 1892
The year vanishes! In this twilight hour it takes leave of us, or rather we bid farewell to a part of our life. Once more we stand upon the border lines of the years. Behind us and before us roar and rush the turbulent and turbid waters of time. The present a narrow island a moment between two eternities. Unto us, too, the mighty waves are reaching, and our life, like the ark in the Biblical story of the flood, is borne upon the crest of angry billows, tossed and beaten by the storms of fate, driven along the pathless depths of time, while no one knoweth whither his fragile ark will be carried, or where at last it will find rest; whether upon the mount Ararat of power and opulence, or in the vale of poverty and sickness. We look around us and we behold on all sides the devastations of all-engulfing time.
