How to Heat a Christian Home

Every now and then a colder night comes along and reminds us of a simple fact of life. Its still not Summer yet, and the heating gets turned up.

But how should a Christian heat their home? We have a few ideas…

  1. Have a hot mug of Church Coffee. There’s not much taste but you’ll have heat your home if you bring enough home.
  2. Get home group over, and arrange to meet in the smallest room you have. The combined body heat, will at least warm your room up.
  3. Invite the deaconate over. The hot air will warm your home up. For weeks.
  4. Cook for EVERYONE in church. The heat from your cooker will at least warm your kitchen up. But it may also melt any chocolate you have.
  5. Spend your days and nights doing as many exercise routines that you can, you’ll be shattered, but you will probably feel warmer for it!
  6. Pews. Fire Place? Just saying…?
  7. Pray for fire to fall from heaven… and for it to fall in a safe and accurate way. Accurate, because you probably don’t want your home to burn down, due to an access amount of heavenly fire.
  8. Use those left over Bible study notes as fuel for the fire.
  9. Spend long enough watching this on your TV…

How Christians Keep Warm In Winter.

Well. Winter time is now here. The nights are darker, and the colder months are here. Before we snuggle together for warmth too much, let’s pause and consider how a Christian should keep warm.

We asked a number of high profile (and therefore Godly) Christians, how they keep their church nice and warm. Here are the tips we picked up.

  1. While in Church, ensure you share the peace energetically – build up a sweat!
  2. Have communion wine on a regular basis to keep you warm.
  3. Pray that you will be heated from within by the flame of Gods Spirit!
  4. Ensure you Church has heated kneeling mats.
  5. Adjust the seating arrangements – cuddle up a little bit!
  6. When cooking, use a open fire. Like the disciples would have done. Obviously use an open fire indoors as well*.
  7. On the lead up to Christmas? Ensure everyone has an advent candle, each!
  8. Switch that heated baptism pool on high!
  9. Test your faith! Call down fire from heaven!
  10. “Just fix the flippin heating.”

Any other ideas?
