Signed, sealed and delivered

As we set up the new church here, it's not all about contact-making and relationship-building; there are some bureaucratic matters to be attended to! One is to obtain a seal with the church name. Everyone in Japan has their own seal, often more than one - there would be one for everyday use and one which might be used for more official documents. Now that we have the church name decided, we ordered our church seal which we will use for anything from stamping receipts to opening a bank account. Somehow having a name and a seal gives us a certain sense of 'being', even though we have yet to begin worship services and only have one believer attached to our fledgling church. We'll say more about her in our next entry.
