Things we didn't know about campus ministry life #23: Stuff
Today is the debut of an occasional series, "Things we didn't know about campus ministry life."
Every job has its perks and quirks. Katie and I often joke about the quirks we experience. Some are larger, some are smaller. Some are annoying. Some are just funny. From time to time, I hope to share some of the quirks of our works...the things we had no idea we'd experience when we were beginning a career in campus ministry.
Today's quirk is STUFF.
It's amazing how much stuff we accumulate in our work. Part of this is due to having an office at home (which is currently pending, as we put a guest bedroom/office in our basement). I have all my stuff there, plus other resources we'll need later in the year: bible studies, books, office supplies, etc.
But there's other stuff too. When we left Illinois, I chuckled as I offloaded on the other staff a trunk-full of boxes, books, bags, volleyballs, you name it. There was a certain pleasure in getting that stuff out of our hands, and out of our basement!
Much of the stuff we'll put to good use in our fall recruiting and large group meetings. But I don't know about the kazoo.
We'd appreciate your continued prayers as we plan and pray to get ready for the semester. Nick, our EDGE Corps staff, moves here later this week! We're so excited he'll be colaboring with us!
Happy Monday, friends!
