Spiritual Mentorship

A recent New York Times article on Friendship got me thinking about the power of spiritual friendship/mentorship. The late pastor English pastor John Stott, wrote movingly about his friend and mentor Eric Nash (who he always affectionately referred to as ‘Bash’):

I thank God for the man who led me to Christ and for the extraordinary devotion with which he nurtured me in the early years of my Christian life. He wrote to me every week, for, I think seven years. He also prayed for me every day. I believe he still does. I can only begin to guess, what I owe, under God to such a faithful friend and pastor.
