A Perfect Evening

The weather was perfect as over 60 men got together at Heritage Pointe for an evening of great roast beef, lots of conversation and a very inspiring message from Dr. Phil Nordin.  Phil talked about the importance of using the correct words in how we express ourselves: Maybe, Might, Should, Could, Would and Must. These words can often lead us to a sense of defeat and demoralization when we use them in the language of failure.  Phil went on to say that he came to realize that the power source of unworthiness is past failures, “if only’s” and “should haves”.

This leads us to the question:  How do we get beyond the self-deprecation that comes from past failures?

There are two changes you can make:

1) Accept that your failure can be progress, and that your failures will often lead you to good decisions.  In other words:  Fail Forward.

2) Learn to redirect your focus:

      • Focus on who you are, rather than who you are not
      • Focus on what you have, rather than what you do not have
      • Focus on what you know, rather than what you do not know
      • Focus on health rather than pain
      • Focus on your abilities rather than your limitations
      • Focus on where you are going rather than where you have been

A great message to leave with the men.

Thank you Dr. Phil.

The Ryder Cupsters

The Ryder Cupsters (Cole Hartung, Garth Hartung, Myles Hamilton and Don Poffenroth) are the new champs! They led a hard fought battle with many other teams hot on their heals.  Coming in @ -8 under par, they nudged past the Duffers who finished up @ -7, while a few other teams finished up @-6. This is the Cupsters fourth victory in the last five years.  Well Done!

2019 Golf Tournament Highlights

Soaked to the bone

Despite the drenching rain, four groups managed to finish the course without a dry piece of clothing.  ( “Soaked to the bone “! was one comment ) But that didn’t dampen the evening as over 60 men shared an excellent roast beef dinner and listened to an insightful talk by Pastor Warren Wiebe.

Warren talked about how life is like golf. 

The early period in life is like being on the tee box;  the fairway is long and wide.  There are lots of choices.  The consequences of a bad drive or poor decision are usually not too bad. 

Your second shot / approach shot is similar to middle age.  You must be more accurate and the consequences of a poor decision (in life) can have more severe consequences.   You could end up in the water, a sand trap or thick rough around the green.   In mid-life, a poor decision could bring you financial ruin, a divorce or poor health.

When you’re on the green and putting is like your finishing/golden years on earth.   You need to be very focused on the goal (for a believer in Christ — eternal life).  You must be accurate, in direction and effort, to sink your putt and you must keep your eyes and mind focused on Heaven and Jesus as we draw close to the finish of our lives.

Thank you Pastor Warren!

three-peat Champions!

Congratulations to the three time champions! In the final moments, the Sub-Pars (Ron Bushman, Greg Kist, Rodd Sawatsky and Reggie Bengleton) were leading the field at -8 when on the last hole the Ryder Cupsters pulled off a 40 ft eagle putt (Myles Hamilton) to force a putt-off.  Donn Poffenroth sank a putt on his first attempt to give the Ryder Cupsters their third championship in a row!  The Ryder Cupsters each received an 18 hole round of golf (compliments of Silver Wing) and have their name on the coveted MANtheGAP trophy!
