Ezra 9 – priests and God’s chosen people guilty of intermingling. Ezra cries out to God in grief for his people. Our sins and mistakes don’t affect just us. We communally sin and we need to strive for each other’s holiness and pursuit of God because our actions have ripple effects

YHC was excited about leading a Valentine’s Day themed workout. Box of Chocolates – never know what you’re going to get was in consideration like grab-bag theme, but YHC didn’t want idle time standing around, thus we begun with Merkin Mile and finished with a little shuffle. Many PAX shed layers as they must not have rejoiced over the 50 degree temps we were blessed to receive.
