Jacob’s Ladder ala Mac

Genesis 28:10-19

Jacob left Beersheba, and went toward Haran. He came to the place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold, there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or “beside him”] and said, “I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac;

Jacob’s Ladder has been a symbol of Judaism, Christianity and Islam long before our father’s fathers were roaming the big ball. YHC has always interpreted the symbolism to represent the bridge that Jesus creates with the physical world and Heaven. Today it represented the bridge between pain and getting better.

  • Tclaps to the Pax for putting up with my addiction to burpees and hills. I am currently in a 12 step burpee recovery program but it is on a hill so I guess I can’t win.
  • Ranger and Etch-a-Sketch paid their first visit to Jumanjii, hope it was worth the price of admission.
  • Note to self: Sumo Stomps do not work well in cadence
  • Tclaps to Ranger for leading the BOM. Help us recognize those who are in need of something.
  • It is always an honor to lead the men of Jumanjii. Can’t ask for harder working guys. If you guys didn’t sleep in I would post here regularly.


  • Mud run is this saturday. If you are not in it and would like to help please see Alter Boy. If you would like to help with photography get in touch with Ranger.
  • Patty Packs 5k HM is Dec.6 be there or be square.
