And as he regathered
his forces, Tarzan reached Taug's side, and then clambering higher up to the point where the end of the grass rope was made fast, he unloosed it and lowered the ape slowly downward, swinging him in until the clutching hands fastened upon a limb.
Amid frequent and thoughtful endeavors to remember; amid earnest struggles to regather
some token of the state of seeming nothingness into which my soul had lapsed, there have been moments when I have dreamed of success; there have been brief, very brief periods when I have conjured up remembrances which the lucid reason of a later epoch assures me could have had reference only to that condition of seeming unconsciousness.

the Jews to Israel and prepares to bring to fuller measure the One New Man, Jew and Gentile as the Bride of Christ, I believe these insights and calls to repentance are part of his kingdom activity in our generation.
He describes Advent as God's time of preparation, when God calls us to the wilderness, where God regathers
and reshapes us for nothing less than God dwelling among us.
