Seminary NEVER Told Me...

That a rolling pin was a necessary tool for ministry.

Every year the UCW (and helpers) make pies as a fundraiser. THey make apple (fresh peeled apples, no canned filling here) and raisin. I mean we are talking in the neighbourhood of 5-600 pies each year. Four mornings are set aside over 2 weeks and a group gathers to peel apples, roll pastry, fill shells, and bag the pies. Mind you I am sure that more talking happens than working at times. A great project, not only is it the major source of income for the UCW but a great community building time as well.

Yes, a rolling pin and a love of flour under the fingernails are necessary tools for ministry.
