I love my job. If you are new here, I am the secretary at my church. I have been there almost 4 years now. I work alone, usually. The pastor pops in from time to time, but his office is mostly mobile. The church is 96 years old and in need of many many repairs and updates. The roof was just replaced and now the stained glass windows are in need of repair, which is estimated to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Since I started as the secretary there, I have made many changes and updates to the office itself, including a total makeover - new window treatments, new pictures for the walls, plants and some new office equipment. There is, however, one piece of office equipment that I am still using and I despise it. It is the old fashioned, outdated, obsolete...typewriter (as shown in my blog header). We use the typewriter to type confirmation, baptism and new member certificates. I am fully aware that there are certificates that you can print out and design on the computer. But, I have to convince the Pastor that the computer generated certificates will look and feel as nice as the high quality ones we are now typing on.
It is my mission. My goal. My passion to rid of the ugly green outdated monster that invades my space. I am a Church Lady living in the 21st century for goodness sakes!
