Circle of Trust:

  • Khakis discussed – the value of being PREPARED as Leader.  Quoted some amazing leaders:
    •  Ben Fran kiln “By failing Prepare you are Preparing to Fail” and “An ounce of Preparation is worth a pound of cure”

Jimmy Carter “We should live our lives though Christ was coming tomorrow”

The greatest PREPARATION we have is preparing our hearts for the Lord

Hope for the best PREPARE for the worst

The number one antidote for fear is PREPARATION

  • TAPS
    • Prayers for guys who couldn’t be at F3 today
    • Prayers for Folsom and new AO – Heavy Metal

Coffeteria/QSource discussion was held inside Paradise Bakery.

  • Preparedness – getting ready for the expected while being ready for the unexpected
    • Ezekiel 38:7 – “Get ready; be prepared, you and so the hoards gathered about you, and take command of them”
    • Socratic
      • Does a man’s need to be prepared change over time?
      • Is preparedness a mindset or a process?
      • What drives a man’s desire to be prepared?
    • Spur
      • There are for quadrants of preparedness: Get Right, Live Right, Lead Right, Leave Right
      • The process of preparedness is deliberate and sequential
      • Love is the accelerant of preparedness

Khakis
