Plankamid Returns!

14 PAX did the work in the schoolyard this morning.  4 figured it’d be pretty easy so they ran a 5K beforehand.  Solid turnout today with #Kotters galore and a PAX DR from Wake Forest.  The origins of the Plankamid trace back to Pathfinder Spearhead ruck training – best performed w/ 30# on your back but we made do with some additional activity this gloom. Aye!

Devo: All your everything

Matthew 22:37: Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

We’re often fed what to consider successful or gratifying, but if it doesn’t jive with Matt 22:37, it’s the wrong thing, brother.
