Real Men Don't Do Church!

Men's Group Curry Night

Thursday 11 Nov 2010
7:30 pm, The Ostler, Uffculme

John Poynton will lead a discussion on the topic of "Real men don't do church!"

  • We talk of Jesus being our lover when men want a leader and a captain.
  • We talk of surrender which carries connotations of defeat (and is only mentioned in the Bible in those terms!) But, men will bend the knee and submit to a higher authority!
  • Men don’t like to get too close too soon yet we think it really helpful to break into small groups or say “grace” whilst looking into each others eyes.
  • Men want leadership whilst the church provides pastoring.
  • Men love to declare objective truth about God and yet we sing about our feelings.
  • Men want to be challenged yet we wrap the gospel up in fluff.

As usual it should be a lively debate with lots of challenge and humour!
