[excerpted from The Christian Observer, 26 November 1947.
(The charge given to Rev. W.M. Clark when he was installed as pastor of the Thomson Presbyterian church, Thomson, GA.)
Whenever a minister moves to a new charge, and before he begins his work as pastor and leader among a people he does not yet know, it is wise for him to ask three questions. Two of these were asked by the Apostle Paul as he began his ministry, and one was asked by an Old Testament prophet and leader.
