The gain largely can be attributed to the rise in the stock price of Eli Lilly and Co., whose shares make up the vast majority of the endowment’s assets. Lilly’s share price rose about 13.2 percent in 2017.

I don’t share these guidelines to be yet another burden. In reality, if you take these to heart, it will make your job easier and win a crucial ally and partner in ministry.

1. Respect our expertise.
