Harold Fickett on Ralph Winter: “He took ideas seriously … he didn’t take himself seriously”

Interview by Stan Guthrie

“Most Christian leaders are–like secular leaders–people whose confidence and sense of direction attract followers, and they glory in how they set the world around them spinning. They have big egos and they need them for the work they do, but they are rarely interested in cultivating relationships with people outside their orbit. Ralph could be hardheaded, as any of the people who worked with him will readily tell you, but he was genuinely humble, meaning that he took a genuine interest in what others were doing.”
