YHC recently read about a Plank special 9 inning workout and couldn’t resist rolling it out at this past Saturday.  If you didn’t get  the chance to read Plank’s back blast or maybe you forgot how it works let me spell it out for you .

  • Play on a ball field preferably
  • You need 4 bases or theoretical bases
  • Choose a movement between bases (sprint, lunge, bearcrawl; you get the picture)
  • Designate exercises at each base
  • Randomely or designate # of reps per exercise per base

Matthew 5:14-16

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

From Capernaum while giving this message, Jesus could have pointed to the ancient city of Susita  which had  a pagan temple high on the hill which would have had bright lights at night, when referencing a “City on a Hill”. Are we to be that kind of light to the world or show the love and forgiveness of Christ. We are always a witness, but what kind a witness do you choose to be? And will you hide it or let the world see it?

Prayers:  pray for Paula Deen who lost too much in the big Granite mill fire. And the others that we don’t know (360 storage units there and few businesses). Prayer of thanks for the firemen who were safe.

Always a pleasure to lead the men of GF.  Good to have visitor Heafty too.
