Chaos is all around us. Even for this Q, we had to relocate the main workout because the original location did not have powered outlets (although it did have non-powered outlets). This resulted in a nonsensical order to the exercises, but that randomness lent itself to the theme of the Q which centered on an antagonistic being inserting mayhem into what would have otherwise been a normal workout.
But unlike the Q from Star Trek TNG, Jesus is not a malevolent or mischievous god. We are never promised that we will not experience turmoil, but we can trust that God has good intentions toward us and will be with us through everything. Keeping close to him, keeping in step with him, will give us the peace and foundation to weather whatever Red Alert situation may come our way.
PRAYER REQUESTS: Niles’ daughter, Victoria, leaves for South Korea on Saturday. She’ll be there all summer.
Chop Shop is starting his second job and his M will be home with 4 kids all day.
Welcome back, Quatro! Great to have you back in action today.
LETC encouraged a large AO, such as HMP, to branch out and start new AO’s.
Congrats to Stingray on capturing the Ghost Flag!
