Banner’s Commemorative Edition to John Newton; Newton’s Pastoral Counseling

Friday, September 21, 2007

(ht: Reformation21) for this rememory.

John Newton on Counselling 101

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 good than all the counsel I could give them.’

… ‘Spend more time in company with others, avoid musing by yourself, and reasoning.’ (p.22).

BTW, this is a great edition of Banner Magazine.
