Green House Construction Update at VMRC – April 3, 2012

Visit VMRC!

A few weeks ago I spent a day with my parents, and I checked out the Green House Homes construction at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community.

The earliest part of construction, right now after the groundbreaking, is the most challenging time for everyone to watch, because we want to see more than we are seeing. It’s that way with any construction project.

Holes are dug, concrete footings are laid, and I even observed some pipes here and there. We all want to see buildings, but they are not rising up just yet because foundations must be firmly installed before the rest of the structures are built.

The Bible mentions the need for strong basic infrastructure in Isaiah 44:28, “…and its foundation shall be firmly laid.”

So, too, will these Green Houses Homes in the new Woodland Park community have firm foundations — in the physical sense, of course, but also in the bonds formed by optimistic and wise elders who choose to live together despite some of the challenges and rigors of aging.

Make no mistake, the structures in Woodland Park will be homes — not mere houses.
