Final YHC Birthday Exercise in honor of my grandpa, who every year on his birthday would do a headstand for the number of seconds that was equal to his number of years. Partner up, do a headstand for 42 seconds with partner help if needed.
Mosey back to the flag: Announcements, numberama, namerama.
YHC took us out.
NMS: Birthdays are always a good time to think about one’s mortality. David Brooks often speaks about Resume Virtues versus Eulogy Virtues. Resume virtues are about our achievements, successes, and image: those things that others see. Eulogy virtues are about character, courage, faithfulness, patience and love: those things that reside beneath the surface that we all hope people will actually say about us at our funerals. The problem is, the world around us pressures us every day to focus almost entirely on the Resume Virtues, even though we know it’s not the way of life. The Eulogy Virtues are also much harder to attain: they require introspection, self-awareness, repentance, and above all, suffering. But as Jesus said, the one who seeks to gain his life will lose it; the one who loses his life, will gain it.
Let’s be men who go hard after the right things. Thanks for the honor of leading among you!
