not very shocked, only mildly alarmed

{ Now playing:
Recent movies: Oedipus Rex****; Prime Suspect 2****;
Recent books: Isaiah; Revelation; Luther, Comm. on Genesis 6-14; Rogers, War Cruel and Sharp: English Strategy under Edward III, 1327-1360; Brunner, Dogmatics Vol. III; Brunner, Dogmatics Vol. II;

So our postcards arrived today. Small, squarish (rectangular, really), flat pieces of d00m. I mean, really, our faces are on them (from a delightful photo by yaga, I should point out), they have the little logo of ACME, and just state that we're serving God's work in East Asia by being IT Coordinator for ACME USA. It's just like we're real missionaries or something!!

As a matter of fact, we are real missionaries, and we keep getting short sharp shocks to that effect. And of course, of all the things I thought I might do when I aimed at seminary, missionary work never even hit the list... There's something to the old saw: "Man proposes, but God disposes".
