The Ministry of Small Things

And now a brief word to my fellow teachers. Don't neglect the ministry of small things. This includes a listening ear, a helping hand, a chat during breaks, coming to class early to field questions and allay fears, returning emails promptly, an open office door, and words of encouragement and (when needed) strong admonition. 

Teaching is nothing other than the ministry of small things to accomplish great things.
