Premises committee at Ottawa Monthly Meeting started out the summer of 2013 with several important upkeep tasks for the building. An older fish pond needed to be drained and filled. The pond had played an important, relaxing role in people’s summer lives, but required more maintenance than we could muster. To reduce winter freezeup of small puddles, major patches of the interlock brick, which had sunk and looked unkempt, had to be reset on the walkways, to improve surface water drainage. We also had to upgrade the ramp, all the way from the parking space through to the front door entrance. This upgrade included the resurfacing of the main porch with concrete. The original porch had sunk four inches since the building was renovated in 1985! To boot, we had to add a hand rail all the way along the west side of the ramp. Not only would these ramp and porch repairs make the building’s main floor wheel chair accessible, but we would also then have our ‘assembly space’ meeting municipal code!
I am glad I was here. Now I am clear, I am fully clear... All is well; the Seed of God reigns over all and over death itself. And though I am weak in body, yet the power of God is over all, and the Seed reigns over all disorderly spirits.
