Gloomy, temperature was just about perfect, got soaked by the man made rain from the sprinklers over in Renaissance Park. Couldn’t have asked for better conditions for my VQ.

Nameorama completed. FNGs named. COT and then prayer requests and prayer.
COT focused on the need for us to stop trying to be good men and to strive to be good at being a man. The different is stark. We so often define someone as a good man for the things they don’t do: pornography, heavy drinking, language, etc. But this is merely an image of a passive individual moving through space and time. Being good at being a man means being defined by what you do. It means intentionally pursuing our wives, actively pouring into and discipling/leading our children, and consistently looking for ways in which we can serve our community and stand up and support those who cannot do so themselves.
The workout was meant to remind us of the fact that when we lower the expectations for ourselves, when we take the easy route, when we choose momentary pleasure over, we are not the ones who suffer but those who are dependent upon us. It is not going to get any easier, but the rewards is worth it.

I mentioned this above already, but a highlight was definitely getting “rained” on by the sprinklers. It added a nice touch to the collective suffering and doubled as a shower for some of our PAX who needed one. Another highlight was grabbing an FNG who was running by (not sure which PAX did so). Hopefully he’ll get plugged in up in Chicago!
Ringwald took the lead with announcements.
