Synopsis

This is part of a two-article set (with A37) designed primarily for Ministers who work from home but applicable too to all church and mission staff including those who work out of a central office.

This first part investigates the space in the room in three sections.

  1. Enjoy your study!  Twenty factors that impact the feel of the room - small changes to one or two of these can make a big difference.
  2. Lay out the room  Issues to consider include purpose, desk location, clutter, vertical spaces, safety, workflow.
  3. Place the desk  Further thinking on this key piece of furniture covering what its real use should be, how to work at it effectively and how to organise what you have on it.

The point is that God has made us as human beings and not as machines. Especially if administration is not our thing, we function better in our studies if we find the space feels good.
