QIC talked about comfort, fear and peace. Especially how it resignates in throughout in our current state with COVID-19. How comfort and fear can be that sucking sound we hear that takes us away from our purpose and ultimately peace. Encouraged PAX to seek that continued peace and not let over-comforts or fear steer us away
BALL OF MAN: Mayhem lead us out in Prayer


What can I say? The men of The Battery have a special place in the QIC’s heart. The fact that they went to drastic measures to make signs and cheer me on for a welcome back Q just warms my heart and brings a tear to my eye. You should’ve seen the commitment. Highly recommend touring this AO. The Mania and Fandamonium is strong!


Battery is now 3 days a week (T/R/S); Mrs. Baker is next Q on Staurday (5/16/20); 3rd-F looking to start back up in June
