God Whose I Am


And yet, when all is said and done, advance which comes as continuous progress is an expansion of the circle of which self is still the centre. It may theoretically be so expanded as to include all mankind, even all spiritual beings. But self is still the centre, and if God Himself be included in the circle, He is peripheral, not central; He is, for me, my God, not God whose I am. (William Temple)

Hi Warren,
Do you have any bibliographic details on this quote?

No sorry I don't. I can't remember where it came from.

I suspect from a Googlisation that it comes from Nature Man and God
