    Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.

    1 Samuel 12:24
    • Fear the LORD = caring what God thinks about us above all else
    • Faithfully serve = always doing the “next right thing”
    • All predicated on remembering/being thankful for what God has done for us in the past


    • There was some discussion around a certain PAX’s mother-in-law visiting and its metaphorical association with the arrival of a hurricane.
      • This included his silence at one point being him running “The Sound of Silence” on repeat in his head.
    • Once again YHC could not math and exercise simultaneously.
    • It was unfortunate (or fortunate, depending on your level of masochism) that both Jokers came up during the Deck of Death; and both were on the last of their respective 7-card sets.
