YHC had some free time on his 49th birthday before a dinner reservation, so what better way to spend it than by Breaking Bread and sharing some celebratory cheer with the Medical Respite residents. Here’s how it went: Warmarama: 20 minute run to Kroger for Lemonade/Iced Tea 2 Liters x 2, cupcakes x 12, caesar salad kit + tupperware bowl x 2, and lasagna fixings. The Thang: preheat oven to 350. Brown 1.5 lbs ground beef and 1 lb hot italian sausage and 2 minced garlic cloves, drain and add crushed tomatoes x 28 oz and tomato paste x 12…

We talk about being HIMs. High. Impact. Men. This message is about asking for your help to make a real-life Impact – both in time and effort – on behalf of a group of people who F3RVA has sponsored for the last 4+ years. For those not familiar, F3RVA helps by feeding residents in the Medical Respite facility at the Southside Health Center. This is on the Q sign-up sheet as, “Breaking Bread.”  The PAX (sometimes multiple PAX and/or with their family/kids) sign up to bring dinner to 10-15 people recovering from injuries or illnesses at the Medical Respite Clinic on…

RVA’s virtual 3rd F men’s open faith discussion covered the book of Job.In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. We read that Job did not have a tipping point to drive him away from his integrity and faith. Would you? What is it? Can you identify it and harden yourself against it now? Where is your Shield lock if you were to hit this tipping point event? Who will sit with you for 7 days in silence? 6 men of RVA talked…

A four PAX donned the armor and locked shields for a disclaimer and The Thang bundled in a COT. The plan is to continue the 3rd F biweekly at 8pm on Tuesdays on Zoom at least through the end of the year. Check Slack or PM for the link. The next 3rd F is Tuesday, September 29th at 8pm on Zoom. Mark your calendars – Gypsy with the Q!

The Q for the 3rd F opened up at about 4pm, but 5 PAX posted to show that a meaningful 3rd F hot potato can be had. There seemed to be a theme in the PAX names of single-word compound names. The next 3rd F is open to all PAX. Prayers for YHC’s mother-in-law as she undergoes surgery today. The next 3rd F is on Zoom on Tuesday, July 21st at 8pm. The Q is open! The plan is to continue meeting virtually biweekly through August 18th, then transition to in-person meetings in each nano-region. YHC’s church is a resource…

Nine PAX showed up with eight working speakers to participate in the 2nd 3rd F on Zoom. This thing still needs a name! NMS: Disclaimer, The Thang, COT (well, the whole thing is a COT). EF gave a positive report about his dad – he should be coming home soon. Great news! The next 3rd F will occur on Zoom on Tuesday, June 23rd. Honeydo with the Q.

Eight faithful Pax connected last night in the dusky gloom to see what the Inaugural 3rd F Bible Study/Devotional/Testimony/Sermon from YHC was all about. Offshore had been wanting to start a Bible Study after the First Watch beat downs on Wednesday morning before Covid-19 arrived. He and YHC decided to not wait until things opened back up and agreed to begin the Bible Study virtually for the time being. This will occur again in two weeks on Tuesday, June 9th and will run bi-weekly. Volunteers recommended to lead. Format is up to the Q. Offshore will lead on June 9th.…

Representative’s from three of F3RVA’s nano-regions, converged on Belt Blvd this beautiful evening to serve up some food and fellowship with our brothers. After Husky blessed the food, twelve Medical Respite patients were served: Pork BBQ w/ buns Beef BBQ w/ buns Cole Slaw Baked Beans Cookies Lemonade Tea The twelve were very appreciative and very hungry, but there was a somewhat somber mood with the TV blaring the news of Kobe Bryant’s passing (may he Rest in Peace). If you have never participated and experienced Breaking Bread, please sign up on the Q sheet (every 4th Sunday of the…
