COT / BOM: Q accidentally skipped the COT trying to get the PAX out of the rain and honor the time. But later sent a brief word via GroupMe. When Jesus was transfigured, Moses and Elijah popped up. Peter wanted to hang out with them, Jesus, and the inner circle of three. But they were the point. Jesus’ glory was the point. They weren’t the show or the sideshow. They were simply there to point to the main show: Jesus. We ought to do the same. Be a man not for recognition. And be present so you can point to Jesus.
MOLESKIN: This was the workout QIC first performed when he was an FNG during Hurricane Irma last year with HIM Four Eyes on VQ. F3 doesn’t have to be complicated. The growth comes in the way we challenge and encourage one another to be better and work harder than we thought possible. One FNG splashed merlot. A thing of beauty.
