Brought up the movie Dunkirk about how allied forces were surrounded by German forces on the beaches of Dunkirk France in WWII.  The solution to save lives of trapped allied soldiers was to use ordinary men and fishing boats to get to stranded troops.  It took ordinary men in fishing boats to go across the English Channel to help save lives.  It’s the same with us and Christ.  He calls us ordinary men to go out and be Christ every day.  We may feel ill equipped, but we aren’t.  It takes a leap of faith and doing.  Ordinary men doing extraordinary things.  It’s the same thing Christ looked for in the disciples.  Ordinary men willing to not ask questions and just do.  Let’s be ordinary men doing extraordinary things!

Incremental Growth

5:30 COP – 7 min

  • Baby arm circles X 10 (forward/backward)

  • Merkin
  • Goofball
  • Jog 2 parking lot laps

Line up in parking lot Burpee Dans

Beginning at the curb, perform 4 lunges then 4 burpees, rinse and repeat across parking lot, run back to curb. Then 4 lunges and 3 burpees. Rinse and repeat (then 2 burpees, then 1 burpee). Plank or BBS until group finishes.

Mosey to lower parking lot – find a battle buddy

One man runs the length of the parking lot, performs 5 Merkins, then runs back while partner does Merkins (100), then BBS (200), then jump squats (100). Trade each lap until the total number is completed.

Next exercise:

Group splits: Half begin Bearpees (10 bear crawls followed by 1 Burpee), while the other half start Bernie Sanders on the hill. Bernie Sanders group relieves Bearpee group. Endless until 6:15am.


Growth is hard to see. We measure growth. When an acorn is crushed by a 1,000 lb. tombstone, who wins? It’s a no brainer. The acorn always wins. God waters it, and slow growth appears. Let’s all work toward incremental growth in our spiritual life– the same way we are working toward growing in fitness and strength.
