We played some modified hungry hungry hippo. There were four teams of 3 people (one team of 4) spread equidistant from the center. Everyone did a wheelbarrow to the center and grabbed 4 tennis balls to throw back to their cone, then completed the wheelbarrow back. The whole team did 20 reps of each exercise on the tennis balls (15 reps if you got the orange tennis ball) and then returned the tennis balls to the center and repeated. While doing the wheelbarrow, the other member of the teams would hold Al Gore or a plank.
There were 21 tennis balls with different exercises on them and two orange tennis balls that were 15 bodybuilders. Each team got the orange balls at least twice.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Catholics have mass every day of the year and therefore have specific Bible readings every day of the year. Here is the Gospel for this morning:
The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’ So Jesus addressed this parable to them. ‘What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.
Or what woman having ten coins and losing one would not light a lamp and sweep the house, searching carefully until she finds it? And when she does find it, she calls together her friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found the coin that I lost.’ In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
These passages also remind me of the prodigal son. You see, we all want recognition and it makes us feel good when we are celebrated and told that we are doing a good job. But if we are not careful, we start to get jealous, just as the son who stayed with his father. If we think of the sheep in the passage above as humans, do you think that none of the 99 would be jealous? They did what they were supposed to do, but this other sheep that went off and got lost is getting a party because it came back.
The Bible also tells us that the man who puts money in the collection basket when everyone is watching him and making sure that they know he is contributing has his reward. That feeling he gets from the admiration of others is his reward. We must remember that our reward is in Heaven, and we must rejoice when one of our lost brothers or sisters comes back into communion with us. We should be the ones organizing the party, not the ones getting jealous because someone who was lost is getting that recognition.
