AO: Hacksaw


It was a bit brisk this morning hovering in the twenties somewhere with a nice and what felt like a somewhat heavy breeze. That could’ve just been Escobar’s hind music


Slow Mosey over to the Commons Pavilion. Split into two groups roughly 15-20 yards apart. Group A bear crawled to Group B and back to the starting point, while Group B held plank. Group B then bear crawled to Group A and back to their starting point while Group A held plank. Rinse & Repeat (did 2 rounds to get the PAX warm)

QIC referenced a recent sermon by Andy Stanly called “Paper Walls”. The premise around the message centered around excuses. Excuses in many cases turn into “reasons”, but that is a false cover or a paper wall put up instead. Those reasons tend to become a “because”. I didn’t do this because, I couldn’t make it because, I can’t tell him/her because, etc. (EXCUSE – REASON – BECAUSE). An excuse can be defined as a lie to ourselves about ourselves. Over time it can even become a believable story or a “reason” why we do or don’t something.

As we start 2022 there are a lot of good things we want to carry with us from the previous year (friendships, families, etc.) However, don’t let an excuse old or new be one of those things. Don’t carry that excuse with you. My Dad always says to me and even my daughters, “There’s no time like the present.” Start now don’t wait. Procrastination is the theif of time.

BALL OF MAN: Our guy Madoff closed us out in prayer this morning. Continued prayers for several PAX


Pretty apparent there were a lot of professionals at Hacksaw today. That’s all. Should’ve shown up to get the rest.

How was the backblast, Dundee? Do I get a merit badge?
