John Newton on Counselling 101

Posted by

Iain Murray, writes in the August-September issue of The Banner of Truth magazine, a commemorative edition marking the anniversary of the death of John Newton in 1807, on Newton's pastoral skills:

"'Have you no friend in Cornwall or the north of Scotland you could visit?' he might ask such a person. 'I thought a ride to Land's End, or John O'Groats, might do them more them more good than all the counsel I could give them.' ... 'Spend more time in company with others, avoid musing by yourself, and reasoning.' (p.22).

Priceless!
