  • Rescuing a Brother - I meet with a group of men at my church; we call ourselves "a band of brothers."

  • The Problem of Virility - Here is more insight from Alastair Roberts.  He notes our society has difficulty with male virility because of what he calls, "gender-integrated environments."   How  do we deal with the male libido?  "When historically male spaces become gender-integrated,"  maintains Roberts, "men must tone themselves down in practically every realm of life."  Men then become stunted, needing… Continue Reading
