The Good Book

I was invited to be the special guest speaker at the Glencoe Book Club meeting, with the tantalizing offer to speak about anything I wanted.

Given such a blank slate, I heeded the advice of a mentor who related how he would use opportunities like this to teach what a minister does during the week. So, like him, I walked the group through my other Bible (read: dayplanner) giving a behind-the-scenes look at meetings, on-call hospital chaplaincy, and tending to real estate details.

We didn't discuss an actual book but I garnered the names of some worthy authors to keep in mind.
