Announcements/COT:

  • CoT
    • The Plague shared about purpose
      • People often love the misery of certainty more than the uncertainty of misery – sometimes we continue doing the wrong thing because it’s comfortable and we know what to expect
      • We often search for our purpose at work but what if our purpose is right in front of us at home with our Ms and 2.0s?
      • Pay attention to the clues life gives you about your purpose and what you’re good at
  • TAPS – continue to pray for all our F3 brothers who are injured or unable to attend workouts due to other circumstances – Waffle House, The Curse Mommy, Pablo Momma, Honey Momma
    • Stretch closed out in prayer
  • Coffeteria/3rdF at Hy-Vee in Shadow Lake

Aye!
