Growing in Torah. Article 1. 7/8/2016 “Construction of a Green House.”
Here at G.I.T this early summer, we began construction of a very large green house.
It began by adding unto a previous structure made 2 years prior. The holes were laid out and dug, and then it was realized that the original structure was off center by just a few inches, which meant many feet at the end. In our efforts to build it rightly for future members of G.I.T., we uprooted the previous structure, keeping it intact, and moved it to the required spot. After all this had been accomplished, we began raising one green house arch at a time. Before we had constructed one hole, one arch, and set it up one at a time. Through learning and good leadership by my fellow student Daniel, we constructed all arches at once, laid out like dominoes. Thanks to his idea, we have put up 2 in a matter of 45 minutes, where as before it would maybe only be 2 in 2 hours. Currently we continue construction but hope to be well done the primary structure before the new moon of this month.
The construction of the Green House has been a great task as well as an opportunity, and remains to be so for sometime. It has given spiritual insights as well as social insights in team work. Through the construction of this Green House, spiritual lessons such as the need to walk upright in faith through careful measurements and proper communication skills have become more clear, along with the reality that sometimes things may not be as they seem. We may see that in our walk through life, we develop habits, structures, that are all fine and dandy for that one to 5 arches, places in life. But as we walk them out longer and longer, that mere inch turns to a great gap, showing the entire structure to be crooked. How important it is to have a right foundation, a corner stone, Yahshua our messiah and husband, which from Him pours out true uprightness.
