Bookstore PETS

This past Thursday, I called the bookstore at the Big Old Seminary to see if the book list for August Term had been released.  It had, so I hurriedly recorded the information for the Biblical Greek & Oral Interpretation of Scripture texts over the phone.  While I was out and about Friday on errands, I stopped by the campus to see whether or not books were actually beginning to fill the shelves in preparation for classes in less than three weeks.  I found my fellow postulant from Grace visiting with the bookstore employee who had previously been pastor to our hispanic La Gracia congregation.  A mini-reunion!  As I stole a glance around the corner, I saw there were some books out but not many.  So I got mine.  YAY!

A Primer of Biblical Greek - N. Clayton Croy

Public Reading of Scripture - Clayton J. Schmit
The HarperCollins Bible Pronunciation  Guide - William O. Walker, Jr., ed.
A Well-Trained Tongue - Alered R. Rosser 

I also snagged a box of 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" blank study cards (earlier in the day I made my own Greek alphabet flash cards by chopping up 3" x 5" index card; I figured ready made cards would be better for when we dive into Greek vocabulary) and a BOS school sticker for the back window of my car.  I avoided total geekiness when I refrained from buying a nice ceramic seminary coffee mug because my Washington Redskins travel mug will work just fine.  Football season is underway next week when training camp opens.  WOOT!  
When I got home and showed Heart Of My Heart my latest acquisitions, she glanced at the sales receipt and giggled.  

"Look at this", she said, "you're one of the PETS of Cokesbury!"  

(PETS stands for Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary).

Thank you
but I fared just fine through the bookstore itself, and have my books 'in hand'. Cheers!
