Let there be an office!

And Liberty said - let there be walls and a window, let there be furniture in that office, and let it wrap from corner to corner, and let there be light in that office, and more light once the fire inspectors come. And let there eventually be chairs for people to sit on to meet. And let there be a computer, but not a Mac, and an all-in-one printer. And so it was... after Liberty township took its sweet time with permits.

And that is where I write this post from - my new office. I no longer office-squat in the youth "office" with its beaded tapestry, pink, orange and green walls and incessant flies (amongst other creatures I have only "heard" about). It was a great office while it lasted, except for the flies, but it is nice once again to be in a space that is mine, where I can feel comfortable "making it my own" and not worry about anyone else needing to stop in and use the computer or have a confidential meeting. We aren't exactly overflowing with meeting places. I even conducted my first "meeting" in here last night, but I'm going to have to work through the logistics of stuff because it felt a little cramped last night, but I'm sure once everything is in, all the kinks will get worked out...

God would probably have said it was "very" good if you only had a Mac sitting on your desk

I know exactly what you went through. My first month here I spent waiting for the new buildings to open, where my office would be. It took over another month to get the furniture I needed, and the church actually outfitted me with a PC - a nice one, but still a Dell.

It feels good to have an office home now. Sure makes it easier to concentrate and feel at home. Glad you can have the same.

Great news on the office Don! You mentioned it to me on the phone but reading your blog reminded of just how much things have changed.

It was great to talk the other day. The realities of full-time ministry are upon us no doubt.
