Announcements and prayer requests:
Thoughts with Mud Run participants this Saturday. Be safe on the course, men. F3Connect – great networking opportunity for the PAX – Wednesday 15th for lunch at Mia Francesca’s. Look for tweets from Les Nessman or Costco to sign up or for more details. October 25 – THE MULE – sign up to hard commit so we can adequately prepare. Convergence at Pullen this Saturday, 7am.
After a brief commercial for the bluegrass (IBMA) festivities downtown this weekend, name-a-rama included a challenge to the PAX to name a band or musician that they were either currently really into or that was extremely influential in their “formative” years; input captured below.
A pleasure, as always, men. Thanks for the opportunity.
