  • YHC took us out in Prayer


  • In celebration of the Guy Fawkes Nov 5th holiday, the PAX performed a lot of 5’s and 11’s. For those counting, it also appears we completed 135 merkins. Missing the animated wit of both Bone Thugs and Hardywood, it was a quieter PAX focused on achieving F3 greatness. BUT, YHC was personally uplifted by the presence of SPIT, traveling DAYS to reach our beloved domain to check off the Forge as he nears completion of ALL AO’s within a month! (Or something like that) YHC mused about the meaning of the Guy Fawkes history and where Americans have stood as rebels in the history books while now faced with our own terrorists and rebellions in many forms. We closed in prayer for our country – may we grow stronger together through this tough season instead of being torn apart by divisions. May we as F3 HIM’s be a light of reconciliation, setting the example in selfless acts of love. Thx for permitting me to lead brothers. SYITG, YHC, DTH
