COT:

  • Name-o-Rama. No FNGs.
  • Prayer request for Icy Hot as his grandma recently passed away. Prayers for Khakis and the Rockbrook community who are grieving the loss of a young man in the neighborhood.
  • Announcements: Valas on October 8th. Check your email. Be sure to RSVP.
  • The Big One talked about the 412 first responders who lost their lives on 9/11. They lost their lives trying to help others as they ran into a burning building knowing they may not make it out. While hopefully nothing in our lives rises to the level of the choice they had to make that day, we all have challenges that we need to face. We can choose to ignore them or accept them head on. Part of being a leader is taking on difficult challenges or situations when its not always the easy thing to do. The Big One asked the Pax to think about the challenges they may have and encouraged them to face them head on     
  • Tonight Show closed with a prayer
  • Coffeeteria followed at Karma

Cheers!

The Big One
