We’re calling it First Tuesday. That’s because it will happen once a month, on the first Tuesday of every month, starting September 7. We’ll meet at church at 7:00pm, then huddle up and launch a conversation about the topic of the month with an interview with someone who can help us think carefully about whatever we’re talking about that night. After the interview and some big group Q&A, we’ll divide up into smaller groups for a couple of application questions and a time of prayer. We’ll wrap up by 8:15.
Ahead of the meeting each month, I’ll be providing you with a bibliography. My goal here is to give you a whole bunch of options to consider as you get ready for our meeting. Some guys will want to go way deep on a particular topic. Other guys won’t have time to do any advanced reading or listening. The prep work is entirely optional. You don’t have to read or study anything to come to the dinner or to benefit from the conversation that will take place. But if you’re interested and want to read a few online articles, watch a few videos or snack on a podcast or two before you come, I’ll provide you with some options to consider.
In months to come, our topics will include conversations about managing money, marriage, leading your family spiritually, how to form a “band of brothers,” and current subjects like what the Bible says about gender and sexuality and racism and CRT. Yes, we’ll go there.
So guys, pull up your calendar right now. Put the First Tuesday in on the first Tuesday of each month, from now through next May. Plan to attend. And maybe invite a friend to join you. I think this can be an ideal setting for guys who are on the margins spiritually to find a safe place to connect with us.
First Tuesday. Are you ready? I’m pumped.
