Charles Clayton Morrison
Born in Harrison, Ohio, he attended high school in Jefferson, Iowa, Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and the University of Chicago. He was a young minister when he purchased the foundering Christian Century magazine in Chicago in 1908.
With donations and gradually increasing subscribership, the magazine survived and prospered under his editorship until his retirement in 1947. He became a well-known spokesman for liberal Christianity. He supported the ecumenical movement, particularly the establishment of the World Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches.
- "The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership."
