Title:Preaching of John the Baptist
Notes:"The wilderness is our solitary place, our lonesome wasteland, our desolate, empty space, wherever our course of action is uncharted and our way is unclear...This crying out from the wilderness and darkness is not a quiet conversation. It is a confrontation. It is also a prophetic pronouncement and declaration, the origin of which does not lie within you or me as individuals, but with God. Our crying out is God speaking through us. Our voices echo His Voice within us." (Yoder, 122)
