24 PAX met in the gloom at Paradise Island. YHC welcomed them to a cold, windy morning in the gloom. After reviewing the mission, principles and disclaimer (including: I am not your friend for the next 45 minutes). It was cold, so without haste we moseyed down Regency Parkway to Harney Parkway for Warm-A-Rama.

COT: SNOOKI’S COURAGE

Some OG PAX have heard my story. From time to time, I still need reminded how to show up for my fellow PAX. Nearly seven years ago when I joined F3 in Greensboro, I was not participating in QSOURCE. I stayed for coffeeteria occasionally. My routine was to attend workouts and leave immediately afterwards – getting ready for my day.

After posting for a few months, I decided to attend a coffeeteria. I was pretty quiet but engaged in the conversation. In Greensboro, there was a PAX member named Snooki. He was Greensboro’s version of Mufasa. Snooki constantly mumblechattered and spoke his mind. Snooki and I worked at the same hospital system.

As we left coffeeteria, Snooki said it was nice to see me at coffeeteria. Until that day, Snooki said “I am not sure if this guy likes me. I am glad you came to coffeeteria.” That comment was a wake up call for me.

Snooki helped me see that I was missing. I was not engaging in the second and third Fs. I was only realizing a small portion of what F3 can to in a man’s life.

My encouragement to the PAX. Go to QSOURCE. Get on the Q Schedule. Go to Coffeeteria. This is where the real magic happens in F3. I am incredibly grateful for Snooki’s wake up call.

We ended in prayer. Several HIM joined QSOURCE afterwards. We discussed #Missionality. It was a great discussion about the mission of F3 and how we reinforce that mission in everything we do.

Grace & Peace,

Wait Time
