Every day - Fathers Day!

So now we've got a year to get ready for next Father's Day. 364 days on - watching, praying, leading by example, correcting and encouraging, hugging and guiding, fighting traffic, bills, competitors, our own flesh, and all those dragons out there.

A great read from the Lancaster (Pa.) Intelligencer Journal, "Dad's day is not spent in church." The writer rounds up the usual suspects, and reminds us of the obvious, the typical, traditional, organized Sunday service is not most men's first choice for Sunday morning activity. The blog activity after the article is great!

What's behind the full scope of men's spirituality is a much better question, and much more complex. Even if churches (or Promise Keepers events) were filled to the brim with men, one would have to look more closely at a man's 24-7 choices and activities to find out what men's passions are, and how we truly interact with God.

Let's keep digging.

"Counsel in the heart of a man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out." Proverbs 20:5
