Stones needs to add Toothless to the F3 Bluffton WhatsApp; he’s only on the F3 Lowcountry group and cannot make posts.

Prayers: Unspoken


Lot’s of good mumble chatter this morning.

Lifeboat wasn’t impressed with Pritchard Pocket Park, so I had to give him the full tour of Old Town’s parks. Glad I was able to share our little jewel of a town to visitor.

Lombardi hates Crab Walks

Toothless is tired of wearing masks. Time to get back to normal.

We’ll all be feeling those Lieutenant Dans for a while but doing it while experiencing the view from the bluff at Church of the Cross softened the blow.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years since Foodstamps EH’d me into coming out that muggy Saturday for Jack Sparrow’s VQ. It was brutal, but worth every second. F3 has broadened my sense of community, not only in the fine men I’ve come to know and be influenced by, but also my community in faith. If I haven’t already done so, thank you Foodstamps for the invite.

As always, it was a pleasure to lead you all this morning. I’m looking forward to the next 5 years!

Ball Cock…Audi 5000!
