In His Image

In His Image

Jul 12, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
In the very first book of the Bible we see God model something for us—leadership. He does what leaders do, he takes the initiative for the benefit of others. This is what we see him doing in Genesis 1 and 2. He acts. He initiates. He does something. God looks into the darkness and chaos and he speaks light and life into existence. He creates stars, streams, and solar systems. He orders and arranges creation. God was not passive. He acted. And when he finished, he enjoyed his creation: “And... read more
Looking for Strength

Looking for Strength

Jun 22, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
What makes you feel strong? Where do you go to find strength to walk through life? For men, the strength issue is a massive one. I saw that first hand when taught high school. Here I watched young men looking for their strength in all sorts of ways: aggressively pumping iron, hyper-focusing on athletics, bullying others, using drugs and alcohol, flirting with girls, trying to be the alpha male, being a part of the cool crowd. What was interesting in our classroom conversations about strength is... read more

5 Movies that Celebrate Fatherhood

Jun 14, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
Some movies are entertaining, some are educational, and then there are those that make you feel something. A mentor once told me, "Pay attention to what moves you. It's either God inviting you deeper into the Larger Story or deeper into your own story." Those words have stayed with me and as I find myself experiencing deep emotions during a movie, I try to pause and reflect on what about that particular scene is hitting me so hard. ... read more

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

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
