(Tim, w/thanks to Scott) Some of Church of the Good Shepherd's work is a Saturday men's class called David's Mighty Men. Stephen Baker and I teach, then the men meet in smaller groups for accountability and recitation of their Scripture memory. It's a two-year course of study and as practical as true godliness will always be. We teach male and female, courting, marriage, childbearing, work, authority and submission, fatherhood, church, doctrine...
Right from the beginning, we tell the men that we're out to kill "guyland." What's guyland?
Particularly for young men, guyland's almost always pornography, sports, or video games. Do you know how many men in your church are flunking out of life because...they live in a dank, dreary, dark cave wasting away their lives playing video games? Read this article, then look for the men in your church or family who resemble this man's living death. They're there. Be a church father and look.
Then start David's Mighty Men. Join us in discipling men toward true godliness, which is always true manliness. Think David's Mighty Men. And if you want help, send us an e-mail.
