we need men to engage.
this last week, our large group gathering left the friendly confines of our ministry center and headed out to the heart of our campus. there, we were going to engage with and bless some students who had organized an event to raise awareness and donations to help end the homeless plight in our area.
we brought donated food items and money. then we received cardboard boxes and were told to make a cardboard house. it was called a “cardboard camp-out.”
when we got there, i looked around at all of the students who had gathered. and i noticed something…
we had brought the only men in attendance.
i pulled our 10 or so guys off to the side and i encouraged them. i told them to look around and notice the lack of male presence. i thanked them for engaging. for participating. for caring. for leading the way. and that we needed them to do so.
