  1. MARY:
    Pickle Pounders x70 (yep- that’s not a typo), Heels to Heaven x 30
    COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
    14 souls
    CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
    Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.”  Are you a Peacemaker? Or do you help stir dissent as I often find myself doing, sometimes without even knowing it.  With over 11 years in law enforcement, my job is literally to help keep the peace.  But, this responsibility lies with all of us in almost every aspect of our lives, especially our relationships with others.  Stirring dissent, whether it is engaging in gossip or complaining about someone, ruins your witness for Christ.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

The Hindenburg’s creators were silly enough to put a lavish smoking room on board. However, their primary job was to get people safely from point A to point B. Challenge: What’s your primary objective as a Christian, man, husband, father, friend, etc.? Do you focus on the tasks, easy things, comfort, etc.? If you can get 1 thing right in your day that’s actually important what would that be?

MOLESKIN:

Prayers for Guano’s grandfather’s funeral and Trolley’s wife’s health.

Good to see Bulldog come out to JUCO who normally posts at Asylum and Big Ball.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Trolley, 5K, and Judge Judy on Q next week at JUCO. Booster says it should be easy. I think that’s a challenge. 😉

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
John 21
So, everyone knows today is the day after Easter. What did the disciples do after the resurrection? Kinda looks like they just sat around waiting for Jesus to show up and tell them what to do. In the meantime, I guess they got bored because Peter said, “Hey, I’m going fishing”. He did something. Something good, something positive, and it sound like he put his heart into it. BUT, as soon as he realized the Lord was the one calling from the shore, he dropped the good thing he was doing, stripped off anything that would hinder, and went hard after Jesus. If you’re not sure what to do, what you’re being called to, be patient, do good, and do it with all your heart as to the Lord. But don’t get so caught up in doing that you miss His call when it comes!
MOLESKIN:
What a morning… 12 PAX for the Elevation Challenge, 13 for the beatdown! Three weirdos killed the ruck so bad, they had time to finish a yoga routine, then get all cold and stiff before the beatdown…
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
