Eminently Practical

When George Teasdale was baptized in London in 1852, he was one of relatively few Church members who had attended a university. While he knew his knowledge could be a lasting blessing to himself and others, he also knew that it was only eternally valuable if accompanied by righteous acts. “Our lives are eminently practical,” he taught in an 1897 sermon, “and we are not going to be judged according to the theories we have, but according to our works.”
