“Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest awhile…”

(Mark 6:30-32)

Introduction: I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger (Ps. 119:19). Matthew Arnold put it this way—A wanderer is man from his birth. / He was born in a ship / On the breast of the river of Time. “The Future” (1852). Can you relate to Mark 6:30-32?
