Much has been as-similated from a very wide acquaintance and asso-ciation with many kinds of preachers - some hascome through close observation and careful study ofthose who, like the Master, were always gladlyheard by the common people, and still more, per-haps, has come from reading and reflection.A young woman, who had studied Latin for acouple of weeks and then stopped, explained thatshe only wanted to get an insight into it, but toknow anything about preaching we have got to govery much deeper than that. We must not only goat it, but keep everlastingly at it. Learning how topreach is much like learning how to swim. Othersmay tell us how to do it, but the thing that counts isthe paddling we do ourselves.
