The PAX left a lot of sweat on the pavement today and worked their tails off. Ran out of time between Rounds 2 & 3. No man was left behind.


Sparkler told the men that the point of the exercise was to push yourself to deeper points of pain and growth in the same muscle groups.

We need our partner and willingness to push ourself so that we grow.

Sparkler drew a conclusion to our spiritual lives. Too often men want to stay shallow in their emotional relationships and openness. “I’m good” is a lie that only we ourselves could believe. Only when we open ourselves to the deep reaching love of God and accountability from others can we “Get Right.”

Jesus and the woman at the well (John 4) show us that Jesus cares to change us even at the most intimate and challenging areas. He is the Source of Life and Living Hope and meets us there. Allow yourself to be honest with him.

Sparkler offered to be available to anyone who needs prayer or wants to talk life.
