There is a great connection between churches and commercial fountains that are seen on those buildings.
The Bible is full of illustrations using things that can be seen to explain things that cannot be seen – and the presence of commercial fountains on many church campuses is an object lesson as well as a beautification element.
From the book of Genesis to the last book of Revelation, water is mentioned over 700 times. Jesus referred to Himself as Living Water and invited all to drink freely; a church is going to be a perfect place then, for a water feature.
An indoor waterfall in the foyer can be a visual reminder of the streams of Living Water promised to the believer. The congregation can look at a chosen verse incorporated into the design and immediately get the connection. A fountain outside the building can proclaim Jesus’ invitation to come and partake of the spiritual offerings inside.
The problem with this idea is the creating of the water feature; plumbing, humidity levels, building codes, design, permits, electricity standards are only a few of the issues involved. This is not a job for a do-it-yourselfer, particularly in a building open to the public on a regular basis.
