Q: The Plague

The Plague welcomed the PAX to a beautiful morning at The Woodshed.

This is F3 – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. F3 is a national network of free, peer-led workouts for men. Our mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Core principles:

  1. Are free of charge
  2. Are open to all men
  3. Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
  4. Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
  5. End with a Circle of Trust

Disclaimer: The Plague is not a professional – PAX need to modify as necessary.

  • The Plague shared two CoTs with the PAX
    • CoT # 1: Happiness is not found after you’ve become fit or healthy or look good in the mirror. The only way to truly become happy is by pouring out your skills, talents, time, etc. to others around you – then you will find true Joy. 
    • CoT #2: The FULL Serenity prayer – when challenges come your way, pause, stop trying to control the situation and surrender control to God

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did,
this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Amen.
