Small World

May 5th, 2011 | By Ian and Dominique Metcalfe | Category: Bibles Direct Latest

You watch the news on TV or read it in the press. You view with horror the tsunami and earthquakes in Japan and the devastation they cause. You feel deeply for the people whose lives have been affected.

And then you move on… to the next bit of bad news.

 Then it catches up with you. Turns out that the unique India paper for the wide margin Bible that you had planned to print in Holland from the French paper supplier is to be made in their Japanese  mill. And suddenly that earthquake is affecting R.L.Allan  in ways no-one had imagined. It’s a very small world and we’re all interconnected.

So our wide margin KJV Bible will have to be delayed for a few months by earthquake, wind and fire. I ask myself: Do I feel worse about the paper delay or for the poor people who are suffering in Japan?
