  5. 5. After following good signage, security access ranged all over the map - nothing to lots.
  6. 6. Many interviews were in the pastor’s meeting office, a surprising number with no desk.
  7. 7. Some pastors have an office within an office.
  8. 8. All were personalized and distinctive. Office size was all over the map.
  9. 9. Most pastors sat in a comfortable chair, and I hope they were energized by our interview.
