For the next 7 days, honor the unsung heroes. The people who show up and put in the work (the Labor, in Labor Day). They may be men and women at your church, job, gas station, grocery store…  We challenge all PAX to: (1) seek out the unsung heroes, (2) acknowledge them and show them that you “see” them and (3) engage them, learn something about them and let them learn something about you.
