MARY:
An attempt at a “square” merkin.  I am sure someone has an awesome name for these.  4 PAX form a square and put their legs on the PAX’s upper back behind them and everyone’s feet will be off the ground.  One group had to modify due to risking further back surgeries.  We definitely don’t want that to happen.  The other group of 4 successfully completed 5 or so reps.  Nice job!
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
8 HIMs in attendance today.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Ephesians 5:22-25.  The relationship between a husband and wife should be the most important earthly relationship.  A husband should be willing to die for his wife just as Christ died for us.  The relationship we have with our children, though very important, is secondary.  Keep this in mind and make sure we are showing our love to our spouses.
MOLESKIN:
YHC snagged this Q at the last minute last night and I am glad I did.  Great group of HIMs to lead!  I look forward to other opportunities to enjoy F3 with them in the future.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
OEW fundraiser at Abridged on Thursday.  Don’t forget to sign-up for Hardship Hill coming up on May 18th.
