"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.

ROCC RFG 2017 - Week 11

And then there was one ...

Our next-to-last evening together and what an eventful night. Thank you Pastor Andrew for your words of encouragement and for kicking off our evening in prayer. Also great to have our friends from Fleet Feet join us on the run.

The rain blew right on by and it was a beautiful, if not a bit muggy, night for a run. Great work everyone as we all did a little sweatin' to the oldies!

Below are the slides from tonight including the link to a truly convicting video on perspective and the call to extend kindness to all. I like to think of it as the starting line philosophy. You just never know what that runner next to you is, or has, or will be going through. Never project your assumptions onto others and be compassionate and encouraging. 

Finally, you will note the slide on race weekend schedules, including the group picture and information for parking. Review it carefully and be there no later than 7:15. 

Ok - one week to go. I cannot wait to see you for our celebration Monday next week.
