Put the hinges somewhere else
The guys were installing the main wooden church doors but had found a problem. Being arched they
could not open with conventional hinges. Unfortunately, they hadn’t brought hinges that would
allow the door to turn around the frame and they couldn’t go back and collect them. It was the last
day of work before Christmas and the next available date would be next year!
Summe asked if I would come through and help solve the problem. Whilst I was on my way, Summe
was sharing scriptures with the guys. To support them he went in search of a Bible. He entered the
tearoom and in the top cabinet was a small cardboard box. Summe thought that it might have small
Gideon bibles inside. He put his hand in and found a number of parliament hinges, the exact ones
needed to install the two large arch doors!
When I arrived, I asked to see the box and I saw there was a date stamp on the box, 31 st January
2000, the exact time that they would have been installing doors on the original building. These
hinges were left over from that build.
How awesome that the Lord would have conveniently put aside the excess for this exact moment so
