Ladder work at Beech House

YHC hasn’t Q’d or even posted at Beech House in a while, so it was good to be here today. I wanted to see some regulars, but Hollow, Arena, Shawshank, Urban Legend, and Jailbreak, were all represented along with Beech House. Good work today, men!

Here’s how it went:

Conditions:  Low 50’s, on and off rain, mostly very light drizzle


Under the shelter:

COP all IC:

  • SSH x 10
  • LBAC x 10 each way
  • TTT x 10


The Thang:

Mosey to bottom of hill on west side of school

1 Round of Sucky 7’s

  • Start with one burpee at bottom of hill, then mosey to the top
  • At top, do 6 burpees, then mosey to the bottom
  • At bottom, do 2 burpees, then mosey to the top
  • At top, do 5 burpees, then mosey back to the bottom
  • Repeat this until you reach 1 burpee at the top

Some PAX started melting because of the drizzle, so YHC was asked to modify under the shelter.

Be Humble Day 2/22

Bible in a Year:

He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!

Philippians 2:8

Today’s Scripture & Insight:

Philippians 2:1–11

I’m often amused by the unofficial holidays people come up with. February alone has a Sticky Bun Day, a Sword Swallowers Day, even a Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day! Today has been labeled Be Humble Day. Universally recognized as a virtue, humility is certainly worth celebrating. But interestingly, this hasn’t always been the case.

Humility was considered a weakness, not a virtue, in the ancient world, which prized honor instead. Boasting about one’s achievements was expected, and you sought to raise your status, never lower it. Humility meant inferiority, like a servant to a master. But all this changed, historians say, at Jesus’ crucifixion. There, the One who was “in very nature God” gave up His divine status to become “a servant” and “humbled himself” to die for others (Philippians 2:6–8).  Such a praiseworthy act forced humility to be redefined. By the end of the first century, even secular writers were calling humility a virtue because of what Christ had done.

Every time someone is praised for being humble today, the gospel is being subtly preached. For without Jesus, humility wouldn’t be “good,” or a Be Humble Day even thinkable. Christ relinquished His status for us, revealing through all history the humble nature of God.
