Miles from the nearest road, all I wanted was to go home.

I had put back many miles but I had lost my companions— laid low in sickness. I wanted to quit two days ago after hunkering several hours from the rain and fearsome thunder.

Now alone, 15 days into my 2011 attempt on the John Muir Trail, off-trail, I had hoped to climb a side peak but now I wasn’t so sure. All I ever knew for years was quitting. I quit karate, sports, Boy Scouts, and it looked like today was no different.

But then God spoke up and reminded me of a lesson that was years in the making, and ultimately would require my whole life to practice.

God had been teaching me the importance of walking on, and three principles that would help me grow into a better man of God.

This year the men of The Sanctuary are learning to pursue God’s answer to the question “What does it mean to be a man?”

Men, join us Friday April 8th at 7pm. We’ll gather, I’ll share how God has taught, and is still teaching me how to Walk On.

We’ll get some time to process together, worship, pray, and enjoy dinner together.

Oh… and by the way, that dinner: Chicken Tacos for donations to benefit Project SCV. Make sure that you arrive at 6pm, ahead of time, for tacos.

Make sure to sign up for the free event online. To get your mind and hearts ready, check out Steve DeSeve's teaching on Dreaming Again from our last gathering.

I'm excited to share what I've learned. I’ll see you there.
