1 John 1:5–10

Walking in the Light

[5] This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. [6] If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. [7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. [8] If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. [9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [10] If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (ESV)

Sin grows in the darkness.  A lot of people are isolated and alone.  Let’s walk in the light.  Let’s bring sin to the light so it can forgiven in Christ, so we can have fellowship with one another, and so that we can grow in holiness.

We didn’t have time for Mary


I spent 5 days on a road trip with my 8 year old son, and while I thought I would teach him a lot of things, he is the one that taught me some stuff.  I wish we could all see the world through an 8 year old’s eyes.  The things we see everyday and ignore or take for granted, or don’t give God credit for are amazing.  I know I don’t always say the right things, do the right things, or take the time to just let God work in me and let me see His creation as He intended.  But seeing it through my sons eyes I do get to see it.  I encourage each of you to go out and see the world better, treat the world better, and make the world better.

Our man Steam ventured into the Dog Pound for the first time and brought an FNG Dinger along with him.  Glad to have you both in the gloom.

Star co-q’s Waxjob and Bartman handled as we gathered PAX! Thanks Men
24 HIM’s showed up to take on the challenge.
I tend to Q on days that have meaning. On Friday my oldest daughter turns 10. It’s big day for me because it’s a reminder of the first time I met her and really experienced unconditional love. I was told I may love a lot of things, but nothing will compare with how much you love and care for your children.


After scaring the doo out of Flanders and Frosty in the morning, I learned how sketchy running on the backside of Matterhorn is by yourself. Sparky said it best, “Every sound back there is a Godzilla”. Seadangacide was inspired from Shooter’s Seadangus (also a bag of suck). If I were to do it again, I would call the PAX together sooner so we could all come back to the AO together.
