I want to continue with our theme on building houses and their particular parts. When you are involved in building a house you begin to realise just how many parts make up a house! Indeed lots of skilled people have to come into play to put a fully functional house together.
I have seen lots of different ways of putting a roof on. Plus there are lots of different styles too. From tiles, to colour bond – even the old Asbestos sheeting. Some are just a flat skillion roof but now days it’s far more popular to have a multi pitched roof with many hips and valleys.
Roofs protect us from the rain and the elements. Everyone knows what it’s like to have a leaking roof and I even know a few who have had a roof collapse.
In terms of our spiritual life, what are those things that protect us? And how are we suffering for the ‘leaks’ in our faith. How can we ensure that we don’t have a collapse? It’s worth pondering for a while!
