Q Spoke about increasing your faith by stepping out of some circles. When you are younger, it is easy to go outside and play with whoever is there, whether it be sports, exploring the woods, etc. There is usually very little consequence to those friend choices (except maybe getting beat at a game) during those years. As you get older, these choices become more important. It is easy to get sucked into peer pressure and social media pressure and get caught up in a friends circle that on the surface might look like a fun circle to be involved with. This is especially true in terms of the “keeping up” crowds of individuals. Social Media has unfortunately evolved many social circles into nothing more than the equivalent of immature high school friendships. It is important to recognize these warning signs and step out of friend circles that are bringing you down spiritually and/or emotionally. A message I heard over the weekend said this, “Sometimes to open up your faith doors to something greater, you have to close down some of your doors to circles that enable thought processes and choices that often times directly or indirectly go against your faith growth”. I have personally found myself often times falling into these traps and often times, I come out worse spiritually than when I went in. I have also lost friends over petty disagreements because the other side of the disagreement seems to be the “cool” option to take. Many of the men at F3 have become a new circle for me in a sense that has helped me grow both physically and spiritually in a way that I would not otherwise have been able to grow.

Left the PAX with one more thought process and question: Someone might ask, are we not supposed to reach out to these friend circles and groups and help them find their faith and become closer to our Lord and savior? The answer to that question is always a resounding yes. But, like anything else, there are two sides to a coin. Those friend circles must also choose to change their lifestyle to follow Jesus and his teachings, and if they don’t, it is just as easy for them to drag you in the opposite direction…. Be careful of the circles you choose to remain in.


BLIMPS and DORAs are separate workouts, right??

Q led the PAX on a warmup lap around the park. Many PAX turned left at the flags out of instinct, the church parking and hill beatdowns have really cause some confusion amongst the Hack Pack…..

Q was asked yesterday: “Church or Dominos”. There may have been some steering in one direction over the other (cough, cough M.I.A.). At that point, it was determined that the Q process in F3 is very much anocratic (half Q dictatorship and half democracy). You never want too much of one side of that…..
