In some areas of life, a small margin of error won’t really make much of difference in the outcome; however, when it comes to your faith, even a small margin of error is unacceptable. For instance, in 1983, an Air Canada flight ran out of fuel above Gimli, Manitoba. Canada had switched to the metric system in 1970, and the plane is reported to have been Air Canada’s first aircraft to use metric measurements. The plane’s onboard fuel gauge was not working, so the crew used measuring “dipsticks” to check how much fuel the plane took on during refueling. Things went wrong when they converted this measurement of volume into one of weight. They got the number right, but the unit wrong – mistaking pounds of fuel for kilograms.

A simple internet search for the term “Extreme Makeover” will net you 4.3 million results. That is a lot of results! You will see everything from weight loss programs to make up videos. There was a program on ABC titled Extreme Makeover and was about plastic surgery. My favorite, however, was Extreme Makeover Home Edition which also aired on ABC. In this show, they provided home improvements or complete replacements of homes for less fortunate families. They would send the family on a paid 7day vacation, while volunteers remodeled their home. The best part was always the great reveal at the end. All the volunteers would gather around with the family, the home is obscured by a big bus, and everyone would be yelling “move that bus!” revealing the finished home.
I work in the cleaning industry, and at times customers expect us to Continue reading Extreme Makeover
