Becoming strong in battle
“The greatest issue facing the world today, with all its heartbreaking needs, is whether those who, by profession or culture, are identified as ‘Christians’ will become disciples – students, apprentices, practitioners – of Jesus Christ, steadily learning from him how to live the life of the Kingdom of the Heavens into every corner of human existence.”
For some time now we have been aware of the battle going on in men's hearts. So many men are trapped, addicted, timid, slothful, etc., and there are very few fathers out there to raise us up.
What is needed is men who will enter into the breech to fight for the hearts of their fellow brothers.
We realize that most men do not know how to fight. Heck, most of us aren't even aware that we are in a fight! The fog of war has clouded our minds, and too many men are just floating through.
Part of what we desire in Saint Paul's Outreach is to be a part of the solution to change the landscape of men's environments in the Church. Saint Paul's Outreach men's groups are a response to the reality that we were born onto Omaha Beach. We are in a battle. And that battle is fought on the terrain of our hearts.
We see our men's groups as a one-direction rescue mission. Each man is going in search of his true heart. To claim back the territory that we have knowingly or unknowingly surrendered to the enemy.
As we journey deeper into our hearts we recover the warrior heart which is crucial in the journey of masculinity. We believe once we recover our true hearts we will be unstoppable.
The fight to recover the warrior heart happens every other Wednesday night at men's night. For details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
