About meI live with my husband, daughter, her son (my grandson) and a dog. I have two sons who come home to visit and to stock up on homemade chocolate chip cookies.

I have always loved reading but read much less than many other people who post to this site. I am an SK/Grade 1 teacher at the moment, working about 50 hours a week at least. I read in the evening, and sometimes on Saturdays. I joined the 50 book challenge, but I'm pretty sure I won't reach that lofty goal. When I worked at the library years ago (for 12 years), I loved conversing with others who liked to read. Primary students love to talk --- but not necessarily about adult books! So this website helps fill that gap in my life. I am also a Licensed Lay Worship Leader, which means I sometimes lead church services. I love to include aspects of some of my reading when delivering a message.

About my libraryMy library is a list of books I have read in their entirety. I do not list unfinished books. I have read some of these books multiple times also. I only read about 30 books a year, so this library represents a couple of decades of reading. I haven't managed the collections thing well, so don't pay any attention to it. I only list books once I've finished reading them.

Thanks for adding me to your Interesting Libraries!
Thank you for the wonderful conversation.
And we all know very little in the end. Keep reading and learn what you can. What is needed will come and be thankful when you are humbled by God. It reminds you of the importance of faith. The opposite of faith is not doubt, it's certainty. Those who think they know it all are the scariest ones in the church. :)
Yeah, Tickle makes those arguments and in some ways it may be all those wonderful things but I wonder. It takes something more than feeling to keep a group together at least in the long term. It takes the ritual religious structure to some degree. Perhaps i am just scared to lose my job, who knows. :) My true hope is though that the Spirit burns through our communities and takes out the fat but leaves the essentials. I hope it brings renewal and life and I hope it brings people together in communities that are not just interesting or serving the needs of "emergents" but deeply committed to serving God and committed to one another. she spoke at our clergy retreat this fall. The woman 72 now, has 7 children, umpteen grand kids and would be the most awesome grandma you could have. Brilliant. Funny. Engaging. Loved her.
Wonderful and terrifying. The picture she paints of the church is one that is faithful, active, & interesting. But also one that seems overly concerned with its own needs/wants and not interested in being committed to anything beyond personal fulfillment. I think she's brilliant and her ideas on Emergence are pretty accurate, I am not so sold on the brilliance of the emergence movement and the future it offers.

More importantly though don't say you are "just a trained fill-in"! :) You have been called by the church and more importantly by God to serve. Ordainment is not the end all be all, it is another important call among many God gives. Good luck and blessings on your ministry.
"Some people mistakenly think you have lots of time to read when you work in a library....You just see more books that you WANT to read!"

HA! You are SO right Nancy! Just the other day a patron in my library remarked, "I'd love to work here and be able to READ books all day!" Wrrrrrong!

Anyway, my part of Southern Ontario has been freezing this past week -- it's a great time for a warm blanket, a cozy fire, and a pile of good books :)
Thank you for your kind note.
