Take a look at this interactive slide show of the Pike's Peak Ascent that was run last Saturday. Then remember the reading from Sunday:
Brothers and sisters:
Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us
and persevere in running the race that lies before us
while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus,
the leader and perfecter of faith.
For the sake of the joy that lay before him
he endured the cross, despising its shame,
and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.
Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners,
in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
In your struggle against sin
you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.
Hebrews 12: 1-4
How does one run the race?
With the grace of God and the selfless and faithful help of friends like the volunteers portrayed in this slideshow of those who helped the runners on Pike's Peak.
Longing to pursue God in the company of friends?
Consider attending our Building Intentional Community day August 31.
No one finishes the race alone.
