Looking for a “Junior Partner”
Having reached the ripe old age of 75 and facing the likelihood that I may not live to be 150, I want to make some serious plans now to help insure that older RLDS books will be available to a generation of Saints—whether I am available or not.
Therefore, I am looking for a “junior partner” who could commit to serving the Saints with RLDS books for the foreseeable future. An individual, a couple, a family, a small group, or an organization could effectively continue this ministry.
My inventory of used RLDS books, website, contacts, experience, etc., will be made available to the right party. Details of the transfer will be determined as we work together.
The immediate question is, “Who is interested in making a commitment to provide good Church books from the past to the people of the present?” I would hope that any and all “hopefuls” will make this concern a matter of serious prayer before planning such an undertaking. And I invite them to contact me for some discussion prior to presenting a letter of intent to me.
Ideally, the person or group should:
• Be young enough to give years of service.
• Be old enough to be dependable.
• Have a heritage in the Restoration and a love for its literature.
• Be located near the Center Place.
• Have time to devote to the project.
• Not be dependent on income from book sales for living expenses.
• Be physically able to move and carry books.
• Be spiritually attuned, with an attitude of serving our fellow beings.
• Have patience and love for others.
• Be able to interact with people from various religious organizations.
I do not expect this to be a “first come-first served” situation. Take time to consider the needs and the dedication required. By September 30, 2018, I would like to have a formal letter of intent (either via e-mail or snail mail) from each interested party stating the willingness to serve. We will then meet together for interviews, prayers, hands on experience, discussion of financial arrangements, etc., prior to determining the person or group to continue this service to the Saints.
Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and questions. To God be the glory!
