the question for you…

So…what is it for you?  What is it that God is calling you to?  You see, it is just so easy to drown in the busyness of this life.  To drown in our past mistakes, hurts, hang-ups and habits.  To drown in the pressures we all face – with our wives, our children, our budget, future expenses, current debt, the pressures of work, the demands of the yard, the taxes, the sick parents, the… the… the…

But as we drown in the busyness, we turn inwardly focused and this “God-stuff”, this radical call of McManus, this stuff we talk about week after week at ManSchool seems go to the “yeah, whatever” file, the back burner.  There simply isn’t time.

Inwardly focused is dangerous.  It is self-focused and self-consuming.  The more inward we focus, the more inward we turn.  McManus’ call is spot-on.  There is, indeed, a hero inside you awaiting to be awakened.  That hero is called to go out, not in.  To live outward.  To live wide awake.

This is what we’re going to be discussing starting next week.  We will start with just the introduction to the book Wide Awake.  If you don’t have a book, get one but you don’t have to have it.  If you want me to order you one, just comment below.  Just come.  Join us.  Let God speak to your soul to become a part of this UPrising of men.  Something powerful is happening.  Each of our last two sessions have been faced with some opposition, some chaos.  It was 35 degrees this morning in a driving rain storm and I dropped the box of books, face down, in a huge puddle of water.  The internet didn’t work.  We are opposed.  And I very much believe we are opposed because we are onto something.  Dream big because something big is about to happen in this community of men.

For those of you that haven’t yet come, we welcome you next week with open arms.  The invitation is wide open.  We would love to have you.  But you have to come in order to experience it…

  1. I just wanted to share that St. Luke UMC is having IRONMEN from 4:30pm-8:00pm on Saturday, February 22, 2014. There will be a law enforcement helicopter, bomb robot, SWAT team, DIVE team and command trailer. Wild game tasting and door prizes. Ezell’s catfish dinner. Big Lee McBride is speaking and he is a great christian comedian/speaker. It is a free event for Men of all ages. Call 706-327-4343 or kym@stlukeum.com for reservations. I have invited some men from our small group.
