Counterama, Namerama

The Chorus of ‘Very Superstitious’ by Stevie Wonder…”When you believe in things that you don’t understand, you suffer…” Important to know why you believe what you believe especially this time of year. Lots of traditions and rituals. What’s “true”? As leaders, right beliefs lead to right behaviors. Don’t lead your life based on what you’ve heard but on what you know. Do the reading!

BALL OF MAN: Thanks for brothers that will come out in the cold wet gloom to help push each other to become better. Petition for God to lead us into Truth and help us to live by it.


Escobar appears to have a scary infatuation with a certain Mexican food …putting in extra work in prep to consume it…and even singing songs to that end. Beware of smoke on the mountain at his next Q!!!
