Most of the people in our congregation were elderly, plus our minister constantly tried to do what was best for the mass. Last July was hotter than normal, plus the a/c wasn’t working absolutely well in the church. If it was ninety outside, it was at least ninety-multiple inside, plus something needed to be done. Although the deacons kept saying they couldn’t afford it, the minister kept saying my buddy and I needed to get the a/c component fixed or repaired. The deacons were told to find the money, or he would need to go to a higher power. When dad said he was going to the higher power, he didn’t really mean he was going to do more praying. He would go to the health association plus tell them the deacons were denying a/c to the elderly. I didn’t believe dad was drastic because I didn’t believe he could go to the health association, although he would complain to someone. When 1 of the older parishioners passed out, dad went ballistic. Even before the sermon began, he walked up to the pulpit. He greeted everyone, thanked them for coming, then addressed the congregation plus the deacons. He said because of the state of the a/c, he was going to let everyone go home. He didn’t particularly want anyone getting sick because the deacons didn’t deem the a/c worthy of the church’s money. One of the deacons reached out to numerous heating plus air conditioning companies plus asked if they could supply us a discount on an a/c unit. Luckily, 1 of their heating plus air conditioning workers had a family member who went to our church.
