Beginning in Dec. 759, famous Tang dynasty poet Du Fu (杜甫先生) lived as a refugee in the western city of Chengdu for four years during the devastating An Lushan Rebellion (安史之乱) that took millions of lives. Chinese call him the "Poet-Historian" and the "Poet-Sage," and Westerners compare his influence to Virgil and Shakespeare. A Chinese proverb says, “the mountains are high and the emperor is far away” (天高皇帝远). Pray that visitors to Du Fu’s former home in Chengdu will find refuge under the wings of the Infinite-Personal God. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4
