Traditional Block Party at Detention

13 Pax posted to Detention and as requested, were presented with a Block Party. It is always a good time at Detention. They know how to work hard, have fun and encourage each other (more on that in the Devo). Weather was perfect and there were plenty of blocks to go around. We learned that pine cones can be dangerous. We hope that Stitches can make it through batting practice after all the arm work, he is definitely getting stronger hanging around the Detention Pax.

Devo: Hebrews 10: 24-25

24 And let us continue to consider how to motivate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another even more as you see the day of the Lord[a] coming nearer.


When you stop to analyze the concept, “encourage” takes on new meaning. It’s the act of inspiring others with renewed courage, spirit, or hope. When we encourage others we spur them on, we stimulate and affirm them.

I do not care how influential or secure or mature a person may appear to be, genuine encouragement never fails to help. Most of us need massive doses of it as we slug it out in the trenches. But we are usually too proud to admit it. Unfortunately, this pride is as prevalent among members of God’s family as it is on the streets of the world.

It is helpful to remember the distinction between appreciation and affirmation. We appreciate what a person does, but we affirm who a person is. Appreciation comes and goes because it is usually related to something someone accomplishes. Affirmation goes deeper. It is directed to the person himself or herself. While encouragement would encompass both, the rarer of the two is affirmation.

All of us need encouragement—somebody to believe in us. To reassure and reinforce us. To help us pick up the pieces and go on. To provide us with increased determination in spite of the odds.

Prayer: YHC failed to ask the PAX for prayer requests prior to praying out, Cobains for that as I hope our prayer covered any concerns the PAX may have wanted to be lifted up
