When pastors negotiate

Ben Dubow, the pastor at our church, wrote of a wonderful exchange with another pastor. Ben wanted to buy two church buses from this other pastor. Here's Ben's account:

"I made an offer. He countered.

His counter offer was for less than my offer.

He said he wanted to make sure we had some extra for registration, insurance, inspection, and any minor upgrades needed--and that it was a blessing to us!

In essence, we got both buses for the price of one (for what they had it listed as on Craig's List). I've never been in a negotiation like that before. "

Cool, huh!
