Remember, Lord, Thy Church,
   to deliver her from all evil,
   and to protect her in Thy love,
   and gather together from the four winds
   her sanctified into Thy kingdom;
for Thine is the power and the glory for ever.

The Didache, early Christian treatise, 1st century

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant
