Hot This Week

Latest Update on Covid 5-3-20


Over a month ago, our region leadership made the difficult decision to close all of our AOs in light of the rapidly escalating COVID-19 pandemic. In the past month, I’ve seen multiple ways that men continue to fight deceleration and attempt to serve the mission of F3: To plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. Whether it was men working out in small off the books bootcamps, on Zoom, or in small groups with a shield lock partner; our men have continued to accelerate through this season. In addition, men have started new bible studies, continued QSource, held virtual 2nd F events, and continued to serve Bethel Men’s Shelter.

But, let’s not kid ourselves; despite all of these efforts, we need to be in the gloom. We need the fellowship that proximity offers. We need the accountability that proximity offers. The reality is that this season is going to continue for some time to come, so we must adapt and reclaim the gloom. That’s why your region leadership has decided collectively to reopen, starting Monday at Old Town. This will be a soft reopen this week in recognition of the 6 year anniversary of F3 Rock Hill. We will open the original 6 AOs this week:

  • Monday – Old Town (0500 start)
  • Tuesday – Eagles Nest (0515)
  • Wednesday – PHOP (0515)
  • Thursday – ManU (0515)
  • Friday – Petra (0515)
  • Saturday – Planet Pain and The Patriot (0700)

Bethel Men's Shelter

Our Region is scheduled to serve for the remainder of the year on the second Tuesday of each month. Jester is leading in May, and we have some slots filled. However, we need more HIM to sign up to Q, help prepare food, and serve. Please consider serving our community at Bethel this year. Sign up is here.

May Word of The Month

The word of month for May is "Radical"

Going into the 1924 summer Olympics held in Paris, France, Eric Liddell was the favorite to win the gold medal in the 100-meter sprint. However, after learning that the race would be held on Sunday, Liddell, staying true to his sabbatical convictions, refused to run the 100m. Having to find another competition, he decided to participate in the 400m heat, a race unfamiliar to him. Disciplining his body for years and training for this one moment, the world told Liddell he was crazy for giving up on his one shot for greatness. But, this only boosted Liddell’s confidence in his decision. Liddell went on to win the 400m in Paris in 1924, and recounting his experience, he reflects:

“It has been a wonderful experience to compete in the Olympic Games and to bring
home a gold medal. But since I have been a young lad, I have had my eyes on a different
prize. You see, each one of us is in a greater race than any I have run in Paris, and this
race ends when God gives out the medals.”

Weekly Q Source Topic - Live Right (Q2)

The Dedication To Purposefulness

To Live Right a man must have an ultimate Purpose in mind

Live Right is the second quadrant of the QSource. It is the HIM’s dedication to Purposefulness.

Purpose is an Advantage sought. To be Purposeful is to Commit oneself to bringing an Advantage into fruition. An Advantage, which is a superior circumstance achieved by Movement, is by implication a thing external to a man in that it requires the involvement of other people to achieve. Whereas the first quadrant, the Get Right, was focused on what a man must do to achieve proper personal alignment and Accelerate himself, the Live Right is focused on the HIM’s IMPACT on the lives of other people and how he helps them to Accelerate.

To Accelerate is to increase the pace of Movement away from the Status Quo and towards Advantage. Advantage cannot be achieved by a single Movement, but must be obtained progressively by traveling through a series of Waypoints, which are the stepping stones along the path. Waypoints are things done with Deliberatude by a HIM who has an Ultimate Purpose in mind. Read More.
