It can’t get here soon enough but Manschool will resume on Wednesday, September 20th at 6am. We were going to start the week before but that is the Church’s CALL TO AWAKEN and I want to encourage all of us to attend that call. The last two have been exceptional and I can think of no better way to start Manschool than to have a bunch of men hear this Call to Awaken.
Awaken is exactly what this fall’s Manschool will be all about. There is so much more for us to experience in our walk with God but we live in a world at war and the grind of daily life, the assault from the enemy and the pain/shame of our own past keep us from fully experiencing the abundant life Jesus came to give us.
We will be going through Louie Giglio’s book and video series “Goliath must fall”. We’re going to spend a lot of time talking through fear and dealing with it. The Goliath of fear you face must fall. It’s holding you back from authentic life in Christ. And there are other Goliath’s as well – there is rejection and comfort and anger and addiction. All of these must fall. Whatever your Giant is … and we all have them … we’re going to go after it hard this fall to slay that beast and set you free.
So to the 50-60-70 men that regularly attend Manschool, God bless you. What a special Tribe we have. Something truly remarkable is happening in our midst. Men are being set free and finding freedom and new life they never thought they could experience. We’re also developing “community” in a real and powerful way.
My challenge to over the next month is two-fold – First, be in prayer for this time and please commit to coming! And second, it is a call, a challenge to “EACH ONE, REACH ONE”. We all have one man we KNOW needs to be coming to Manschool. Your goal is to go find that man and convince him to give it a try. The most powerful way to get a man involved is to personally invite him … “I want you to try this. It’s amazing what goes on, I’ve seen it first hand and I never want to miss it”. That has power.
To the other men that read this blog and rely upon the material here, my challenge to you is this, “IF NOT NOW, WHEN?” You’ve put this off. Maybe you’ve tried it once and didn’t get anything out of it. Come back. Try again. Invest in it. Don’t consume it. Invest in it by committing to it. I promise you, you will not regret it. Your wife wants you doing this. You know you need to be in close community with other God-seeking men. You know how hard it is for you to battle life alone. You know you need authentic. Manschool is many things but I will assure you, it is authentic. It’s a no BS, shoot straight, go right after it gathering of like minded men.
More to come. I have a strong feeling that this fall, we’re going to see God do some amazing happens in our Tribe.
til then … Live Outward
