Mentors. Role models. Stories. Journeys. Biblical wisdom. A community of friends. The empowering presence of Jesus Christ.
All of this is what men* need if they are to learn how to use the STRENGTH God has given to them in ways that are full of love and grace, with the purpose of helping their families flourish.
Living Word is committed to helping men become all God wants them to be. We have men’s groups that meet regularly. Contact Ned Keene at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on men’s groups that are available.
One of the things for which I am most grateful is the LARGE number of men who are really pressing on in their Christian faith. They want to know and follow Christ. They want to love and worship God. They want to make a real difference. You heard a few of their stories and insights this past Sunday through the Father’s Day video. There was so much contained in that video that I wanted to share it with you again.
Thanks to Rick, Chris, Eric, Matt, Shawn, and Mark for telling us their stories and sharing their hearts.
Today God will give you a fresh start, second chance, and new beginning in learning how to use your strength with great love so those closest to you may flourish. He will then do it again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and every day.
Be strong in the grace of our Lord and Savior Christ.
* And, of course, the same is true for women. Women have strength as well, and women need everything I mention in this post in equal measures, but we all recognize that it is hard sailing in 21st century North America to be a healthy, strong, loving male. So, this post-Father’s Day post focuses on men.
Having the ability to empower and resource leaders to bear much fruit that lasts. Being a part of a team of friends and missional servants committed to changing the world.
