On the way home today I heard on the radio a story of a Church in Seymour that was without heat because the boiler has failed.
This Church has cancelled ALL services from December 24th thru the 26th. What a shame, it breaks my heart.
The name of the Church is the Trinity Episcopal Church and here is their website: http://www.trinityseymour.org/
I also found a link on Youtube of them holding the Children's Mass recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwtLkDVTrno
I am not a member of this Church nor have I ever been a parishioner to this Church but my heart goes out to them especially because it's Christmas.
Can anyone recommend a way for them to heat the main Nave of the Church with coal stoves? I consider this method the only hope for this Church because the coal stoves are completely self-reliant and need no electrical connection or elaborate fuel supply. BUT, how could these stoves be vented? It would be impossible to hook up black pipe and run it 50 or 60 feet into the rafters and out the roof.
Any suggestions would be wonderful!
