John Guest’s talk began with a detour. After Jim Lane shared some thoughts on the importance of Energy Groups following the suicide of an NCS brother, John shared how his own father’s suicide had impacted his life. John urged all present to get involved in Energy Groups–to be in close relationship with other men. With the time remaining, John then came back to his original topic. The focus of his message was on the importance of making a real faith commitment–getting off the fence. When he finished, you could hear a pin drop. John Guest
