Falling Into Trust

Falling Into Trust

May 18, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
When I used to teach high school freshman Bible, one of my favorite activities happened during the section on trust in God. Instead of just discussing it, the boys would go and experience it. I would take them to the auditorium stage and have a courageous volunteer stand with his back facing the front of the stage. Then he would fall backwards into the arms of his classmates lined up below on the auditorium floor. There was a moment right after the falling started when it was instinctive to... read more
Living the Mandate

Living the Mandate

May 11, 2018 by John Bryson
God has "hard-wired" men to create and cultivate. I believe at the core of a man's heart he must be creating and taking initiative for the benefit of others to feel a sense of significance, meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. As we covered extensively in Session Two, God models creation and cultivation as early as Genesis 1 and 2, then mandates those two acts of courage to Adam as the core essence, responsibility, and purpose of his masculinity. That mandate is still ours as men today.... read more

Rely on Jesus

Rely on Jesus

Mar 29, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
Men don’t like to ask for help. We don’t like to ask for directions, money, advice, and lots of other things. No, we prefer to be self-sufficient, powerful, and in control. Many of us would rather take a bullet than be seen as needy or weak. We want to be the rugged individualistic, go-it-alone, pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps kind of man. John Wayne. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Clint Eastwood. Never needy. Always in control. Of course, some independence and self-sufficiency can be a... read more
Skydiving, Lent, and the Beauty of Death

Skydiving, Lent, and the Beauty of Death

Mar 16, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
A number of years ago, I had two friends kidnap me for a day and take me skydiving. It was probably the only way I would ever get the nerve to do it. Once the plane had ascended to 14,000 feet, I was pushed out by our instructor. For the next 10 seconds, I fell into utter oblivion. Time, light, space, thinking, feeling — it all stopped. It's the closest thing to actual death I have ever experienced. When I came out of it though, I was floating. I had reached terminal velocity, and even though... read more
