CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Talked about the fact that we are made for relationship and to be looking out for other men who share common experiences with you.  We often think we are going through hard times alone and that no one could understand our situation.  The fact is, other people have dealt with similar situations to those that cause us worry and pain.  It could be the reason you are going through your current bout with pain is so you can support a fellow man when he is struggling and needs someone to lean on.   So, if you find others dealing with the same issues you have dealt with….use that as an opportunity to engage with them and lift them up.

MOLESKIN:

We had a first today:  while sprinting the matterhorn a car came down the hill following a dog.  Turns out they were “walking” the dog while chain smoking a pack of cigarettes.   Nothing quite like sprinting through 2nd hand smoke!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Following Christ requires action from us according to new standards, developing new habits, and a conscious change of our thinking. Christian maturity is not shown through our beliefs or declarations, but through our behavior and personality. Results are the products of our actions! To grow spiritually, we need to change our priorities and thinking. To be more like Christ, you need to think according to His standards.
MOLESKIN:
It is so good to see members of the pax getting better physically. Seeing where they have improved and become faster, stronger and have more stamina.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Prayers for Lady Junk and the Junk family.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

2 Corinthians 12:15 — “I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls.”

It’s good and right to spend ourselves to serve others.  To use our talents, gifts, energy, strength… to serve others and lay down our lives is why all those things were given to us.    We were not given those gifts to serve ourselves or exalt ourselves.  What a joy it is to be able to lay down our lives for —  our wife, children, employer, employees, family members, etc… What we have today is to be used for the good of others and not ourselves.

Keep going, don’t give up. Plank destroyers for all!

THE SCENE: Nice balmy morning at the dog pound.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Lean hard on your spouse or friend or family because when you fall down its important to have that strong, braided cord to pull you back up. When we see couples weathering through difficult times and keeping their focus on God, that should be a reminder to us about the importance of drawing nearer to our spouse and showing them grace.

MOLESKIN:
Great workout today, partners pushed each other hard and this ended up being a really tough one
