Mosey to duck pond parking lot for spicy dragons

  • Spicy Dragons – Same as Welsh Dragon, but do a low plank before each merkin for a lil’ spice.  Remain in plank position the whole time. Bear crawl forward 4 steps, do 1 low plank, 1 merkin, and 1 plank jack. Repeat adding 1 rep to each exercise each time – bear crawl forward 4 steps, do 2 low planks, 2 merkins, 2 plank jacks, … etc. Go until you get to 10 reps each, you’ve covered 30-50 feet, or until your arms fall off – whichever comes first.

Mosey to cross walk just in front of the performing arts center.

  • Take turns calling go. Sprint back and forth from crosswalk to stop sign.

Had about 5 minutes left to do some dealer’s choice core exercises.

Thoughts taken from “When the Scales Fall From Our Eyes” by Brian Zahnd

I listened to this sermon by Brian Zahnd over 6 years ago and it still sticks in my mind to this day.

Act 9:17-18

17 So Ananias departed and entered the house. And laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight

It was not a convincing argument, a systematic theology, or anything of the like that made the scales fall from Saul’s eyes. Instead, it was being shown LOVE from a man he was persecuting just three days prior that gave Saul a new way of seeing.
