– Smurftastic showing by 8 FNGs; Respect
– Haggis (F3 Charlotte) made a strong showing, as well. We were thankful for his presence, and we hope he will join us again soon.
– We opened with an acknowledgement of Agony’s recent post in the Convergence, and we challenged each other to live our lives with no reservations, no retreat, and no regrets. Embrace the hard!
– We closed with the following Bible passage (2 Peter 1: 5-8):
“…along with your faith, manifest also a noble character; along with a noble character, knowledge; along with knowledge, self-control; along with self-control, power of endurance; along with power of endurance, godliness; along with godliness; brotherly affection; and along with brotherly affection, love. If these things exist in you, and continually increase, they prevent your either being idle or unfruitful in advancing towards a full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”.
– There is a benefit upstairs at Barleys on Monday, September 23 at 6:00 pm. $20/person (children are welcome until 9pm – when the upstairs is 21 and over); includes beer, apps, live music, and a silent auction. All proceeds go towards the Challenge to Conquer Cancer Ride (www.c3ride.org). It is a great group to support, and it would be a great opportunity for some 2nd F.
