"I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year, "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown."
And he replied, "Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way."
- Minnie Louise Hoskins

- Albert Clarke
Jesus often took himself off to solitary places (Mark 1:35; Luke 5:16; Luke 6:12; Mark 6:46; Matthew 14:23)...to pray. More food for thought perhaps?
