Week 6 – Furnaces
As we experience the cold, snow and ice, I am grateful that all of the buildings at Windermere have some way to create heat. We have 126 building! Our operations, maintenance and housekeeping teams do a great job keeping them warm. What would we do without furnaces?
In a natural gas furnace, a pilot light ignites a series of burners inside a combustion chamber. The heat these burners create then enters the heat exchanger, where the heat transfers to the air and raises it to the temperature set by the thermostat. At this point, the blowers take the air and circulate it through the ducts. Propane furnaces operate on a similar principle.
What would you say is the one event or moment that ignites faith?
In my years at Windermere, I have heard hundreds of stories about campers who made their first profession of faith while staying here at Windermere. Many others make decisions to serve as ministers and missionaries while at Windermere. I love it when Christ becomes so real, it ignites our faith and begins a new life in Christ. The Bible says it this way –
My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of
God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 (NLT)
Windermere continues to be a place where our faith can ignite and warm hearts for service! Pray for 1,000 professions of faith this year at Windermere.
