Shoulder Taps x 50

Peter Parker finish thanks to TWEET-E.

As we all know, recently there has been a lot of division in our country. One thing I know that is true is that when I am looking inward only at myself and my needs, I am incapable of seeing and meeting the needs of another. I also know when I put myself before them, I am being selfish. Self-seeking individuals with selfish motives take, keep and divide. However, true outward expressed servant leadership seeks to further the welfare of another and unites.

Each exercise took place at a light pole because as F3 Men and Leaders we are called to be a LIGHT to those around us. Respecting every individual for their uniqueness and creating unity instead of division. Each PAX is as special and unique as the exercise they called out today and the reps performed according to their age. We must celebrate our differences!

The Circle Burp signified that in spite of all of our difficulties and challenges we face (and sometimes those come at the hands of another imposing them upon us), we are all needed in order to make each other better and stronger. I am better because of you, not in spite of you.

The Group Indian Run was intentional in order to create unity and to illustrate that sometimes you lead from the front and sometimes you lead from the back. You must take time to look around you to see who is with you and if anyone is following. Over the next few days, weeks or months pay attention to who you are leading and who you are following.

The BIG QUESTION IS: Where are you going? Why would anyone want to go with you? (John Maxwell) If you look around and no one is with you, you may want to ask yourself if you are truly being a light? Are you serving others, or just self- seeking? Are you dividing or are you uniting?

Where in your life are you taking shortcuts? I realized that I am so addicted to checking the box that I will try to just get things done as soon as possible and sometimes that includes taking shortcuts. I caught my 12 yo daughter taking shortcuts when cleaning her room and just wanting to get things done. I realized that we’re in the same struggle and I’m just a little further down the road.

“Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity”

“With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace — a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.”

“The road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph. They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest — until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war. For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home. Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
