'Whatever you do, do nothing'
Members of the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle are no doubt concerned and dismayed by the ill health of their Senior Pastor, James McConnell, who suffered a serious heart attack two weeks ago.
Jim McConnell, whom I talked to a few weeks ago, is a dedicated evangelist who has built up a thriving church from humble beginnings.
He is a man of action who may find it very difficult to take a step back but, knowing him, no doubt he has more rallies in mind. In the meantime, however, the wisest advice for him may be hidden in the old Irish maxim: "Whatever you do, do nothing."
