With the recent uptick in COVID cases around the area, there has been talk of how we (F3NETN) should be responding. We know it is important to our physical, social, psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing to stay connected. The writer of Ecclesiastes wrote the following in chapter 4 verse 12 (this is from the New Living Translation):

“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”

This verse is often associated with marriage, but I think it holds true for the men of F3NETN at Immortal Station today. We NEED each other. There is support and strength in numbers. Take the time to reach out to someone you haven’t seen in a while. Encourage them, and in return you will be encouraged too!

Thanks for helping me embrace the suck on my 49th B-Day!
