Congregational Notices

Heating Controls: We are working very hard to reduce our exorbitant heating bills, in this regard we are in the process of posting notices at the heating controls as to how to use them.  Last week-end despite a notice clearly in place stating not to touch a certain button and also taping the button over to make it doubly clear, someone pushed  the forbidden button on the Mosaic heating control (now we understand Eve in the Garden of Eden better!). The result was that they did not boost the heat for 3 hours as they presumably intended but rather delayed the clock by three hours which meant that the next group were frozen!  Our suspicions are that this was a man, women read instructions! Who ever you are please don’t do this again and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, read the instructions!  I will now lie down in a dark room until I recover my tranquillity!
