May 10 - Full of Hot Air

This afternoon our architects temporarily mounted two experimental fans in our church. One is mounted on a beam over the lectern and the other is in the area of the organ. This is part of our ongoing efforts to address the issue of warm moist air collecting in the peak of the ceiling, condensing on the boards, and dripping to the floor below. The fans are intended to circulate the warm moist air away from the ceiling. We are testing two different fan styles for noise and air flow. If we decide one of the fan styles is helpful then permanent installations will be done at measured intervals near the peak of the ceiling (rather than beneath the beams as currently mounted).

Fan over the lectern


Then the LORD said: Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD; the LORD will pass by. There was a strong and violent wind rending the mountains and crushing rocks before the LORD—but the LORD was not in the wind; after the wind, an earthquake—but the LORD was not in the earthquake; after the earthquake, fire—but the LORD was not in the fire; after the fire, a light silent sound. When he heard this, Elijah hid his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. -- 1 Kings 19:11-13a
