The Rev. John Gunn

Demon of Noonday

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R. Gunn comments, "Life's noonday is the most perilous period of life, as the story is intended to show. The demon of noonday - his name is legion, animalism, materialism, cynicism, pessimism. How furiously these demons sometimes attack men and women in the midday of life."

Thanksgiving

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "Thanksgiving, the giving of thanks, still comes at that time of the year when the harvest is gathered. It still is a good time of the year to say 'thank you' to God. The right time when everyone is slowing down to the twilight winter days."

Arrival of a Thinker

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "The arrival of a thinker is not always welcome by the world. Comfortable and complacent people do not usually like to be disturbed by a thinker and they are usually quick to offer opposition to new ideas."

Finding Your Way

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "Whatever may be the difficulty you face, the same difficulty has been faced by others. However hard your lot, it is not exceptional; others have been placed in the same sort of situation. None of us ever has any sort of trial, struggle or hardship that is not common to man."

Good Strong Conscience

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

If you have a conscience in good workig order, you should thank whoever brought you up. Are you responsible for the rearing of a child now? Then here is a great opportunity for you; an opportunity to build a conscience so that one day, the child will not have to stop and ponder about what to do and what not to do. He'll know the difference between right and wrong. And if you have done your job well, the child will be grateful to you for the conscience you have helped him develop.

The Rev. John Gunn

Love

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R Gunn writes, "We all wish for love -- the non-physical kind. We want someone to care about what happens to us. Love emanates from a person as a glow from a light hidden inside the body. It's this love that creates a home out of a wooden or a brick structure."

The Rev. John Gunn

Judging Other People

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

How do you judge other people? - I mean, in particular those you don't know very well. How do you suppose other people judge you? In the same way? Using these same methods you do? What are some of these methods? Well, for instance, how you look or how you act or what you say or who your friends are.

The Rev. John Gunn

Giving Thanks

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

If a blessing is not said in your home, it may be that a simple request will let you begin the custom. And it is a habit; not something that is begun by two days or three days, but by a week or two weeks of saying it daily. The more you ask the blessing, the more it becomes a habit and the easier it is to continue. And the more you ask it, the more pleasure it becomes to you.

The Rev. John Gunn

Mountain Top Experiences

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

Every Christian knows what it is to have the mountaintop experiences. What blessed moments are these in the Christian life, but it is not for us to build tabernacles here and be at ease. At the base of the mount lies the valley summoning us back to toil and trial.

The Rev. John Gunn

Replace Hate with Love

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

Nothing is more blinding than the dark passion of hate. Hate sometimes leads to acts of violence and often to murder. The apostle John wrote further, 'Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer.' The act of murder is an act of hate and the man who hates his brother has the seed of murder already in his heart.
