We've nearly finished reading through John Paton's autobiography on Friday mornings! As I was reading it last night, I thought, "What are we going to talk about from the end of 'Part Second?'!" It's just a bunch of info about how he raised money for a new ship. But wow: (a) the way people gave to his work was seriously sacrificial - a real challenge to our attitudes to money; and (b) doing admin is not the enemy of Christian ministry - doing it well is very much a part of Christian ministry. They were the things I was really challenged about.
