Overview

"Our own are our own for ever" has been said by one and another in differing words and in many languages. That is why time and distance are (in a sense) nothing in any human life that lives in the "Things unseen -- Eternal" where St. Paul had his abiding place.
And just as the essential beauty and sweetness of a rose is what stays with us, and not the very rose itself, so it is the personality of a beloved person or the spirit of a season of time (to put it like that) that abides with us for ever. In London's hurrying life; in the press of teeming humanity in a Chinese city; in the grinding monotony of a quiet countryside; on a parched soil under a burning sky; in deep Canadian winter snows, or in the peace of a leisured life -- the Yorkshire Moor away up at Wensleydale, with its waters and streams, its rushing winds and stealing lovely airs, its lights and its shadows, its cliffs and rolling spaces; above all, its magnificence of space and sky, is as present to bless and renew as if Wensleydale itself .were here -- our very own.
It was at Wensleydale around Askrigg that, in the summer and autumn of 1915, a company of men and women gathered to spend some weeks in the most informal way of living, coming and going, alone or together, gathered with one implicit motive -- that of seeking to enter more deeply into a personal relationship with the Redeemer of the world, and into a deeper understanding of Redemption. The two people who created this most natural time of simplicity and freedom, lived that summer in a tiny cottage with Kathleen, then a gay and bonnie baby of two, and Mary of the deep and loving heart, and these Psalms and their exposition were part of the evening hour in the cottage. Some were given in the little plain unadorned Chapels in the villages:
"I to the hills will lift mine eyes": "As the hills stand round about Jerusalem, So..." "The sun by day..." "the moon by night..."
and always one sensed these were "Songs of Ascent," the marching, singing crowds, the hills, the stars -- that and the deep, deep life of the human race in its going through the ages of time -- one did not forget.

ABOUT OSWALD CHAMBERS (1874 -- 1917)
Oswald Chambers was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland, and during his teenage years he was converted while walking home after a service conducted by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. His father, a Baptist minister, immediately attempted to lead him in the way of the Lord. After his conversion, and before he felt called to preach, Chambers studied Art at Kensington Art School and the fine arts and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. After he accepted the call to preach, he studied theology at Dundoon College.
After an initial period of spiritual "dryness" Chambers found a radiant reality in his relationship with Christ. With his new-found spiritual life, he conducted a Bible Teaching Ministry from 1906 to 1910 in the U.S., the U.K., and in Japan. On one of his trips to America he met Gertrude Hobbs, and in 1910 he and Gertrude were married. He affectionately called her "Biddy". On May 24, 1913, their daughter Kathleen was born.
In 1915 Chambers felt that he should help in the World War I effort. He became a YMCA Chaplain, and in October of 1915 he sailed for Zeitoun, Egypt, near Cairo, where he ministered to military troops. While there, Chambers' appendix ruptured. Though he suffered extreme pain for three days, he did not seek medical aid and refused to take a hospital bed that he felt was more needed for soldiers. Had he sought medical aid sooner, perhaps his life would have been spared. Finally, surgery was performed but, following the operation, Chambers died there in Egypt on November 15, 1917.
Perhaps many are unaware of the fact that Oswald Chambers actually wrote only one book: "Baffled To Fight Better." But his wife, Biddy, had been a court stenographer and was very adept at taking dictation at a rapid rate. Thus, she
recorded much of Chambers' teachings as he spoke in public, and after his demise she spent the remaining 30 years of her life compiling the more than 30 books bearing Oswald Chambers' name as the author.
"My Utmost For His Highest" is the best-known of those books, and it has been in continuous print in the United States since 1935. It is among the top-ten religious best-sellers, and with millions of copies in print it has become a Christian Classic. --
