Read a C.S. Lewis quote: “We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive”

I spoke about my Lenten goal of turning back towards more meaningful prayer. My praying habits had become very stagnant and transaction like instead of conversational. Instead of just praying and going about my way, I am trying to make the prayer intentional and I challenged my fellow PAX to do the same if this is also something they struggle with. I spoke of how this quote resonated with me, because in theory, I was on the wrong road in terms of my prayer life and even though I was praying more, it wasn’t true progress. I had to turn back and start over down the right road to make sure my prayer was meaningful and intentional.


44 B.C. = 44 Stupid’s! Also, we now have not only a ten count, but a 44 count in the F3 repertoire.

M.I.A. does not like it when Blackout tells him he is doing a good job, anyone else can tell him that, just not Blackout
