Yes, the new pitched roof at the ministry center is nearly complete and I have to say it looks pretty good. We have a lot of food stored there for the food bank and it is a comfort to know that there will be no drip, drip, drip going on during our frequent rainstorms. Here is a picture of what it looked like before the roof. I will post the after picture when it is finished.
It strikes me that we spend so much time on things in life that really are not that important. I watch mindless television. I read pointless mystery stories. I worry over things that really seem to hold no importance on a larger scale.
And then...I think that maybe everything matters. Everything that happens effects everything else. When I taught high school I would have students who frequently messed up. I would sit down with them and have them fill out a ripple chart. This chart was an attempt to have them understand how their actions had a ripple effect on so many levels with so many people. It was a real eye opener for many of those students. Maybe I should fill one out for me too. Both good and bad.
