Announcements and Prayers
3rd F opportunities were noted by Wentworth
I noted that I had been thinking about two Wayne Americans during our workout. One is the little brother of my best friend growing up. He is the younger brother I never had and I treated him as such growing up. Now however, he is the executive director of Temple Israel, where we did our exercises this morning. I am proud of the man and leader he has become.
I also noted that a pax member in attendance, Skidz, has done a lot of things in his life since my mother noted to me in 7th grade that “I shouldn’t hang out with Greg anymore, he’s a bad influence”. Well, Skidz went on to beat cancer at age 14, graduate pharmacy school, become a leader in the community and in F3. I am also proud of the things he has accomplished and the man he has become.
Both of these stories were to illustrate that, unbeknownst to me at the time, I was surrounding myself with leaders and friends. I encouraged the pax to pay attention to the people they surround themselves with, because the lessons I have learned from these two individuals have/will be inspirational to me in my life. Sometimes their accomplishments seem unreachable for me, but my proximity to them helps me understand that I am capable of similar feats, should the time come when I need to perform them.
