"We all come back to God in these days of soul-sifting," said Gertrude to John Meredith. "There have been many days in the past when I didn't believe in God - not as God - only as the impersonal Great First Cause of the scientists. I believe in Him now - I have to - there's nothing else to fall back on but God - humbly, starkly, unconditionally."
