Inspired by my F3 name, I put together a playlist of songs that inspired the infamous Mississippi pop-punk band, Easily Amused. It includes some nostalgic gems from Nirvana, Blink 182, Sum 41, New Found Glory, Jimmy Eat World, etc.
We played a “fun” game of Catch Me If You Can back to STARTEX for Mary. Partner 1 completed 10 BBSUs, while Partner 2 Bear Crawled til Partner 1 caught him. Flapjack all the way to STARTEX.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Acts 17:6 has been catching my attention. As Paul and Silas were sharing the Gospel in Thessalonica, religious leaders were outraged and jealous. Hoping to bring about Paul and Silas’s downfall, they took matters to the city officials. Their complaint is peculiar. They refer to Paul and Silas as men who “have turned the world upside down.”
The message these men were proclaiming is a powerful one! Powerful enough to bring about real change in society, to “turn the world upside down!” What’s the message? Verse 3: Jesus is the Christ. And verse 7: There’s another king, King Jesus (my paraphrase).
So the question is: is our faith one that’s turning the world upside down? What does turning the world upside down today even look like? Surely it includes righting systems of injustice, working to end systemic poverty, bringing balance to power disparities.
May we be men who live and proclaim such a faith that others say about us, “They’re turning the world upside down.”
It was an honor and a lot of fun to Q for these HIMs this morning. And I (we) got an extra burst of energy listening to some old favorite songs!
BREW RUCK is this Saturday.
