Proofreading, procrastination and Proverbs…

A rare evening off the campaign trail tonight, as I’m putting the finishing touches to the church Annual Report. This is really just an editing job, as the real work is done by the many contributors; but I find it a hard one to finish off. Somehow cleaning the sink is suddenly attractive.

The publication deadline is looming, the auditor has finally signed off the accounts, so it’s now or never. Even my Bible quote for the day is weighing in: “The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labour. Proverbs 12:24”. Ok, Ok, I can take a hint….

    Thank you for your comment; I certainly didn’t mean to be condescending.

    Editing the annual report is quite a big job, and one that’s important to me: I’ve been working on it for a couple of months now. See https://bridgetfox.wordpress.com/2008/03/13/book-of-numbers/ for some of the background.

    But the final editing is really just a tidying up job, fitting the different contributions together, doing the proof-reading etc. The real work is done by all the different volunteers who not only run activities in the church but also write them up for the report.

    If you would like to share your email address with me, I’ll gladly send you a copy of the report when it’s published.
