Andrew Fuller: "A pulpit is an awful place!"

While serving in his first pastorate at Soham, Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) wrote the following entry in his memoir on February 5, 1781:

A pulpit is an awful place!—An opportunity for addressing a company of immortals on their eternal interests—Oh how important! We preach for eternity. We in a sense are set for the rising and falling of many in Israel. And our own rise or fall is equally therein involved.
