Over the past couple of weeks I've been visiting friends and relatives in Mater Hospital. Reading the story of the naming of one of the wards, I was pleased by the statement that the particular person after whom the ward had been named had been the administrator of the hospital in decades past.

'Administrator'! A far better description of the role and its activity than the grand names that people in Christian organisations like to use these days. It reeks of worldly apeing when someone who is but an administrator, organiser, representative, etc, is titled 'Chief Executive Officer' and similar proud terms.

Bearing in mind Luke 22:24-27, I even dislike the term 'reverend' for the paid ministers in most churches. After all, only God is to be revered!
