The Desert

We’ve been driving through the desert for a couple of days, visiting desert towns … I’m originally from the desert and this geography truly resonates with and for me. There is a stark beauty to the rocky land. Leon Morris in a commentary on the Book of Revelation, discussing St. John’s image of “the Great City” as a place of sinfulness, says that the wilderness is the true home of the People of God. I think he’s right. This apparently barren landscape is so full of the Presence of God! No wonder the early fathers and mothers of the church went into the desert to find God.
