Excerpt from Pastoral Theology: The Office and Work of the Ministry; I. Bishop Wilson's Apostolical Commission; II. Bishop Doane's Christian Pastor
Being desirous, through the mercy of god, to please him, for whom I am and live, and who giveth me my desires and per formances; and considering with myself, that the way to please him is to feed my ﬂock diligently and faithfully, since our Sa viour hath made that the argument of a Pastor's love; I have resolved to set down the form and character of a true Pastor, that I.may have a mark to aim at which alsoi will set as high as I can, since he shoots higher that threatens the moon, than he that aims at a tree. George Herbert.
