For these reasons and more, Trails End Log Church will be built using cedar logs. According to E. W. G. Masterman, cedarwood is sturdy, takes a high polish, and is full of resin, which preserves it from rot and from worms. When tornadoes or high winds come against log structures or earthquakes and environmental challenges threaten them, or even when fires attacks, log buildings outperform all other wood-built structures.
The finished building will be beautiful and sturdy, a unique and attractive worship center, place of prayer, and center for evangelism built of the same type of wood used in God’s Temple.
People Are Like Cedars
In the Psalms, godly people are compared to “the cedars of Lebanon”:
But the godly will flourish like palm trees
and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon.
Psalm 92:12 (NLT)
