Most churches teach men to have Shalom by sitting in a corner and being quiet. Stay out of harms way and be 'a good boy'.
Over the next 3 weeks I'll be tackling biblical manhood at Focal Point. This will definately be a powerful series.
For a little insight as to the direction... check out this post by Anthony Bradley. I love it!
Shalom is peace. God brings peace.
In order to have peace at times we need men to provide a counter-weight to the evil one and his schemes. We need men and women who will fight for justice and love and intergrity. We need to quit training boys and young men to be passive and quiet and start teaching them how to express themselves and be true men. If the men of the church were allowed to be men we would see a more close representation of Shalom.
