Living as a Hermit

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The prophet Isaiah tells us of a man who bought up the land surrounding his farm, joining house to house and adding field to field, thus pushing back his neighbors until he stood alone. "What a pitiable spectacle this man presents", comments The Rev. John R. Gunn, "through selfishness and greed the grasping man makes a hermit of himself and nothing is more unnatural than living as a hermit."

Heartache of Loneliness

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

As the time of His crucifixion drew near, Christ said, "The hour cometh when you will leave me alone." This episode of Be Still and Know talks about the hour of Christ's great passion; the hour of Gethsemane. The Rev. John R. Gunn writes that "it makes Jesus seem nearer to us to realize that He knew the experience and heartache of loneliness."
