Bowen’s parting thought on the Lord’s Supper

Last month I read Unitarian biblical scholar Clayton R. Bowen’s “The Last Supper and the Lord’s Supper” “a lecture given at the Meadville Summer Institute on June 29, 1914.”

… Jesus be remembered, that the unswerving faith, the boundless hope, the sure hope, the boundless love, that made him our supreme Master and our supreme Servant, may somehow be kindled in us also, through this simple act that we do in remembrance of him.

I wonder if he wrote it in a self-consciously liturgical way. In any case, I’m going to hold on to it for possible later use.
