Heard Andy Stanley communicate over the weekend and piggy-backed off his words and direction. Take-away: If we are wise, we will pause and ask the question, “What have we learned through all this?” What do we want to move forward?” How can we be better for it?” *Pain without any gain is a shame*

Focus on bein gbetter in three areas: (1) How can you be better financially? What could you have been doing? *I want is better than I owe* (2) How can you be better for it relationally? With your spouse? With your kids? *Own your piece of the pie* (3) How can you be better for it personally? Internally, how is your world view? Do you find yourself praying more for the first time in a long time? Has your faith been rattled? Did you discover your faith was more fragile than you imagined? *PAY ATTENTION TO THAT TENSION* It could lead to something good or something better.

Let’s face and embrace the lessons we’ve learned. Let’s not lose perspective. Let’s get better….together

BALL OF MAN: PAX took a knee and Skitch lead us out in prayer.


No matter which AO the QIC attends, everyone LOVES burpees. It’s an interesting phenomenon that could be a good case study one day. I imagine it has to do with a positive attitude. You should see the smiles once the word “burpee” is spoken. Purely Amazing!
