34. Union and Communion by J. Hudson Taylor

April 1865The branch of the vine does not worry, and toil, and rush here to seek for sunshine, and there to find rain. No; it rests in union and communion with the vine; and at the right time, and in the right way, is the right fruit found on it. Let us so abide in the Lord Jesus. James Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) 

J. Hudson Taylor is one of my heroes, and I have read his biography Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret more times than I can count. It is probably my favorite non-fiction book. I live my life by his secret, and I have since my early 20's when my mentor, Helene Ashker, put this great book in my hand. 

I have read Union and Communion more than once also, but this is the first time I have listened to it. I was reading in Song of Solomon, and this is J. Hudson Taylor's spiritual take on it. It is a wonderful read. 

Here are all my posts on my Bible Book Club Blog about Song of Solomon and this great book:
