"Words cannon even begin to express the amount of motivation and inspiration you have instilled in us after listening to you speak yesterday. We both went in the hopes that we would walk away with just one little tidbit of information to take back to the box with us, but we were given so much more! We walked away with an arsenal of knowledge to utilize not only in the box, but in our daily lives. Your desire to share the knowledge and wisdom you have gained over the years is contagious, and we cannot wait to get in our box on Monday to start making positive change, and to relay the new tools and skill set we learned from you. Thank you, once again, for your hard work and dedication to this sport."

— Matthew and Sarah Lucas

Fortified Tower

________________

“The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” – Proverbs 18:10

______________

Castle walls were designed as a defense mechanism against threats to the population of a kingdom. In the event an enemy force threatened the community, an alarm would sound, and all the villagers would retreat into the safe-walls of the castle.

From the castle walls, the villagers and knights of the castle would mount their defense. In the rare event the castle walls were breached, another alarm would sound, and all the villagers would further retreat into the Fortified Tower.

Every castle had a Fortified Tower. Built with such attention to detail, magnitude and strength, often times all that remains of medieval castles are the Fortified Tower. The Fortified Tower had two unique characteristics:

  • The Fortified Tower was located in the center of the castle. In this manner, it was equal distance to the tower from all walls of the castle.
  • The Fortified Tower was the highest structure within the castle – reigning even above the height of the castle walls. This height allowed the defenders to look out over the interior of the castle at the attackers position.

The Fortified Tower is a beautiful example for the development of our Spirit, and the castle walls our body. By strengthening our body, we forge a strong and durable defense mechanism which protects us from attack. These attacks may indeed by of the physical nature, but more often than not, the attack is in the form of a worldly challenge we are called to face. However, we must remember that regardless of how strong our castle walls are, we must spend time building our Fortified Tower – our Spirit.

All castle walls are subject to breach.

Our Fortified Tower is impenetrable – indestructible –  everlasting.

This is the Way of the Warrior of Light.
