So when commercial fishermen go out they usually take a crew of about 3 to 6 guys to handle the potential catch. Yes some boats have more depending on how large it is and how many fish that they harvest from the sea. They when they are loaded up or our of bait, they return to shore and drop off their payload, which then goes into a factory where many staff are waiting to process the harvest. Now I don’t know the process in a fishing factory but working a decade in lumber now doubt it works similarly.

The fish must be separated into species, grades, sizes, and what not. And before I move on, the season of fish runs do, no doubt determine what process is used in the factories. So but now back to the fishing story and the point of this tale. 

A few peeps catch a large amount of fish, which is then processed by more people than who caught them. Works the same in mining or the lumber industry whereby a few harvest the lumber in comparison to the many that process the lumber in a lumber company. Back in my day 1981 – 1990 we had about 900 staff in just one location processing the lumber. We would never see 900 people up in the woods cutting down trees and driving them down to their final destinies for just one company. 

I am getting down to my point, a point that has been made in several other messages, and that point is…drum roll please…

We should not be sending out the whole church to do the fishing for men and equipping so few to care for the harvest once it comes in. Ha, ha do you see it now?
