“Bring everything you have and are to your ministry – your best craftsmanship, your most concentrated study, your truest technique, your uttermost of self-consecration, your toil and sweat of brain and heart – bring it all without reserve. But when you have brought it, something else remains: Stand back, and see the salvation of God.

– James S. Stewart,  Heralds of God: A Practical Book on Preaching (Vancouver: Regent, 2001; originally published 1946), 189.
