    Hi to all readers, near and far,

I ran into an elderly fellow, a former IC minister, the other day at the 
post office. I recalled his daughter who was a classmate of mine in high 
school and a notorious hell-raiser, being a typical preacher's kid.

He had retired from a long pastorate and I just discovered from church 
members there that the pastors traditionally left the church when they 
were replaced so as not to cause confusion or jealousy. The thought of 
which made me sad.

"Just another consequence of a system gone amuck," I mused.
