Defined by Something Greater

By Mike Burns, Course Leader for “Quest for Authentic Manhood”

 

When I was 11 years old my parents divorced. That cut hurt deeper than I realized.

Eventually, it would be one of several wounds I carried into my marriage. As my wife and I continued to be involved in church and ministry as a married couple, I felt a sense that God had more for me in terms of my role as a Godly husband.

Then I went through the “Quest for Authentic Manhood” series by Robert Lewis. It was the first time I heard another man talk openly about the issues men face as a husband, father, and leader in work and community.   As we journeyed through this study,  I was able to assimilate why I responded the way I did to my spouse and others.  Quickly, I began to understand the connection between my wounds and my present behaviors.  Even better, I was able to develop a biblical vision for manhood and also I felt like I had a safe community to act on that vision with the support of other men.  This study was the catalyst for a process that would ultimately lead to Christ defining my life rather than my wounds, which had done so for far too long.

For any of you men, regardless of age or spiritual maturity, would you prayerfully consider joining this study and inviting one other man to join as well?
