Paul's life journey was coming to an end, as he provided Timothy (and us) with a few of his final thoughts and reflections. In reading through this final known letter from the Apostle Paul, I am left feeling encouraged and motivated to follow his example. One that, despite a rough beginning, ultimately is remembered by steadfast determination to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the discipleship of others. If ever an individual left this earth completely used up, it was Paul.
As we come to the end of RFG Season III, I am hopeful that each of us will find this determination to fight a good fight, keep the faith and finish the race! I am also hopeful that we adopt this attitude across our faith walk and our physical endeavors.
It has been a great season and I cannot wait to celebrate your 5k this Saturday.
Review the slides for any additional information and let me know of any questions. I will see you all at 7:30 for the group photo and then we will start making our way to the start line.
