CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My inner nerd came out and I spoke briefly about the life of Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe faced many difficult obstacles throughout his lifetime – grew up extremely poor, suffered from clinical depression, lost multiple children at young ages, lost a U.S. Senate bid to Stephen Douglas in 1858, and many more as president. However, for each specific situation, he fought through the adversity by leaning on his faith, humility, and vulnerability. Every individual in his close circle of trust was aware of his struggles and he was not afraid to communicate his hardships to those closest to him. This is a rare trait that people truly admired about him.

With the past two years being trying times for everyone in their own way, it is important for us to utilize the F3 platform to encourage, support, serve, etc. each other. I challenged everyone to be vulnerable in 2022 and to never be afraid to speak up if there’s anything your fellow PAX can do to help in any way.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.”

We were going to go to church parking lot when, lo and behold, there was a Christmas note slipped into my CMU and it said that Santa 🎅  had left us a gift under the tree! So we ran to Crumpit to see what might be there.

We found the gift, opened it, and there was a brand new deck of cards and another note! How exciting! The note had the following details.

Nice List

  • ♦️ burpees
  • ❤ original burpees with a tuck jump
  • ♣️ Mr spectaculars
  • ♠️ blockees
  • 1-4 = Trips up the hill
  • Face = 10
  • Ace = 20

So we drew cards for around 50 min and had so much fun!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Got a lot of flack recently for not doing the Santa thing with my kids. I’m not against other folks doing it and teach my kids to be respectful of this big, fun “game” everyone plays with their kids each year. However, like many other aspects of Christmas, these things really lose their meaning and significance when pulled apart from the crazy, reality bending truth of the fact that we are celebrating the incarnation of the most powerful diety we’ve ever known! This separation of the spiritual from our everyday stuff is not true! God made Himself man. The significance of this is astounding when you really meditate on it. For me, this significance was highlighted when a friend and I examined my recent moral failing using Jeff Vanderstelt’s fruit to root exercise. At the end of it, I realized at the root of my sin was a false belief and denial of the incarnation. I had tried to pull out the spiritual significance of giving into my fleshly desires. At least, that is how my false belief had manifested itself in that moment of weakness. So, I’m not saying to get rid of Santa. If anything, I’m trying to enhance that fun “game” by getting it back into the larger and more significant context of Christ truly coming to be with us.
