They are Multiplying
As our time here begins to wind down, I have begun packing boxes in preparation for the next big chapter in the Perils of Pastoring series of events. This morning I began packing books -- just the ones in the house so far, and it seems that the more boxes I fill with books, the more books I find to pack. What are those nasty tomes doing in those bookcases? I can hardly wait to start attacking the bookcases in Ben's office -- OH NO! Did you know that professional movers add approximately 25% to their estimates for clergy moves -- mostly because of books? I'm beginning to think it's time for e-readers. Think of the money that would save on moving and how much space, paper, and ink. But, alas, reading an electronic gadget is just not the same as holding a book or even as seeing them in their shelves just calling out to be held and read. I guess we bite the bullet and keep on packing. Hopefully, there will no naughty book shenanigans in the boxes. Well, enough of this -- guess it's time to find another box and load it up. Stay tuned for further adventures.
