Four PAX squared up – then one more made a circlish pentagon in the gloom of Howard Park for an ark-loading self-improvement routine.  Legs were smoked thanks to those restless howler monkeys of the Jumanji jungle. Glad to be a part of #TheHerd this fine morning. Here’s pretty much what happened.

James 1:2-4 “2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

We are not guaranteed passage from trials and temptation, but we are guaranteed self-improvement if we keep our heads up on the way through them.
