Announcements/Prayers/Praises:

While the group was working through physical pain this morning during the beatdown, Selleck read an except from Michael Sterling’s Untethered Soul and as a good reminder to question if we allow pain/fear to distract us from the important stuff.

Prayer request for all to be mindful of how we fill our worry-bucket and that it does not limit the leadership we bring to our families, work colleagues and community. Rather we continue to face our pain/fears and grow stronger for it.
