I’m down to the final details in gathering all the necessary ingredients to produce this year’s church directory. We had a severe split during the summer, and the only way to know who considers themselves a part of our church community is to build it from scratch. So I’ve been hard at work taking photos and importing data from those who stepped up. It’s almost ready to print. Whew.
Only one problem: Mauri has been sidelined with back issues for going on four weeks now, with no solutions in the foreseeable future. He can sit without pain but needs a walker to navigate life around “514.” So . . . If the mountain couldn’t come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain, as it is written.
On my lunch hour today I set up this portable photo studio in our entry hall. Yes, we have a real tripod, but this makeshift stand with my stack of retirement reads plus two Bibles served us just fine. Mauri found the timer setting on the camera, we put on our happy faces, and . . . voila—
except there’s flash in his glasses, so . . .
Photoshop to the rescue, and . . .
a crop to square, and we are ready to join our community in the directory. In the nick of time!
