We need a 'fixed point', which acts as a centre and a goal, and that 'point' in the history of the world-back to the ages before it, and forward to the ages following - it is the Cross of Calvary. It is the central pivot of the dealing of God with the universe in every aspect. It is because we Christians get away from the 'fixed point' of the Cross, that we wander into all kinds of cul-de-sac places, where we lose the balance and right perspective of truth.So wrote Mrs. Jessie Penn-Lewis, a popular coference speaker of the early Keswick eara.
  Her talk in 1908 fell on the litening ear of Frank N.D. Buchman and the experience she conveyed became the experience of the 12 step recovery movement of the 20th century.
