This story could be you!
I hear about the Authentic Man in church for the first time. Men are male, right? That was my general but painfully wrong conclusion before I got this information during the service. I believed men should act a certain way. I also believed they should keep some things above some other things. However, as the conversation between the minister and the people continued, I realized I was wrong. Yes, it was actually a conversation because he asked a lot of questions, and gave answers to either his own questions or some other one that people asked.
Mindsets were being changed as we listened. It was an all-male meeting. I could say that I’d never written that much before during a Saturday meeting. But yes, my principles and priorities were being reorganized. I could tell the difference between living to find a purpose, and living a purpose-driven life. Moreover, the best part of it was in how I was going to be more effective and influential in the lives of people around me.
I walked up to minister after the meeting and introduced myself. I even asked for the slides that were used on the projector. So much change and impact had been made that I needed to keep the transformation continuous.
