Free labor on building projects. Many brothers I know are skilled whether in carpentry or laying tile and to give labor free of charge????
Comes down to personal choice. Going back 40 years when the Ball Road building was built. Many brothers gave their skilled labor thinking it was strictly for the Church in Anaheim and not for LSM. When the Bellevue locality expanded their meeting hall in the late 90's, many nights I gave my unskilled labor. It's a matter of principle when labor is given for a church versus a Christian publishing organization.
