8 Pax, 1 FNG Houdini, Teacher’s Pet, Rabbit, Shoestring, Bookworm, Hitch, Toms, Four Eyes.
YHC is working on memorizing James during commute to work each day. Made it 12 verses so far. Very slow.

“James 1:12, Blessed is the man who remains Steadfast under Trial, for when he has Stood the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

What does it mean to receive the crown of life? What is “the good life?” What do we want out of it? YHC encouraged the Pax to look to scripture and the life of Jesus to define what is good, and to be conscious of the world around us and its different definitions. I am easily convinced that money, possessions, and power are what defines good, or that I am only a success if I can get my kids into a “good” school in a “good” neighborhood. Look to Christ and his definition.

Tobey has tons of options. Many mumblings about the massive potential of the skatepark – we will have to get a Levee Q out here to show us their ways…

Four Eyes, Bookworm, Shoestring, and Toms for Pre-Ruck. I really enjoy the banter with you guys and it’s a great reason to get outta the fartsack 30-40 min earlier (meaning you went to bed earlier too, obvi).

Regular schedule for Saturday Bootcamp (no service this weekend).
