“I feel very blessed to be involved with a group of men with whom I can share my innermost thoughts and concerns as it relates to my life and my walk with Jesus. As I’ve stated many times, I spent years trying to do all of this my way – that doesn’t work. In 1624 John Donne said, “No man is an island.” There is no truer statement. We need others to help us. Others who know and understand our strengths and weaknesses, other who will share in our successes and who will lift us up when we fail. To some small degree, I was moving on a parallel path to the path God wanted me on for years, but I was not ON the path. Fellowship with a Fire Team helps me to stay ON the path. Being in a group like this is a meaningful step to becoming the kind of leader my family needs me to be.”
