12×12 and DORA 1, 2, 3
THE SCENE: 65 and gorgeous, though just a little moist. Getting to be that time of year when the PAX will all go home sticky and shweaty. Several PAX rolling in late, even after Warm-o-rama….some who were up until midnight re-reading the Captain Obvious live feed from the VAPE session, but mostly Lair PAX who had a secret session to take turns partaking from their newly won KoTB chalice. I even asked the Nantan, who graced us with his presence, if I had to wait for these tardy PAX before beginning THE THANG. He scoffed and so we got right to THE THANG.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Hit the high points.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My son, if you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you,
making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding;
yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice for understanding,
if you seek it like silver
and search for it as for hidden treasures,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
guarding the paths of justice
and watching over the way of his saints.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice
and equity, every good path;
The logic of this verse is that IF you are willing to be teachable, THEN you will receive wisdom. So often we get into trouble because we are not willing to receive and respond to the commands of God or the encouragement from friends. Sometimes a coach gives his players a game plan, but when they only follow through on part of the plan, the results just aren’t there. It’s when we fully commit to the plan that we will see maximum results. My encouragement is to submit to God and do the hard work of joyful obedience.
Shout out to Snowman as he recovers, but I’m thankful for the 12×12 because it can be done in your living room if you can’t post or you’re out of town (except maybe Box Jumps). 3 reps of this 12×12 and you’ll be cooked.
This was my first DORA 1, 2, 3 and I loved it. Very challenging and I would not have wanted to finish it on my own. I was encouraged by the presence of the PAX to press forward and finish.
I considered it a big win to get Wide Right to smile for the pic. We need to EH his VQ ASAP.
SOS workday on 5/5 for all who can make it.
