YHC talked about New Year’s Resolutions usually incorporate getting healthier, working out, getting back into shape to lose. And how it’s work, it’s hard, and sometimes even hurts (i.e., all that lactic acid and soreness the next day or two afterwards). But just like in our faith we can get “Fat in our Souls”. We have become fatigued and weary in our faith. But we’ve got to work hard because we have been called to climb mountains but we’ve become short of breath on the first flight of stairs. YHC also discussed the importance of letting our guards down and becoming more accountable in each other’s lives. To quote Seatdown from GrowRuck 01, “I am tougher than I thought, but still not tough enough to go at this life alone”. AYE!

  • Prayers to the King Family (Snuffy & BigBird) and for the Sesame Street Wedding
  • Continued prayers for OTC and Ashley, Seatdown
  • Prayers for other Pax: Synapse (ankle), Cousin Eddie, Burmese Python (ankle) and the rest
  • Reminder about Trinity Rescue next Friday morning. Don’t forget your cereal.
  • Reminder about 2nd F Lunch next Friday (1/13) at The Loop in the Town Center at 12 noon.

Peace Out – PYRO!
