Question: if 15 cars leave Lismore and head to a men’s event in Brisbane, how many will get lost? Answer: almost half! But Hey, we all made it and from what I’ve heard, the time together in the cars was great for getting into some real conversation, especially on the way home as we dissected all that our very provocative, challenging and entertaining speaker had to offer.
In our discussions about the event it would be easy to focus on the things that we disagreed with (although I’m happy to go on record as saying that for me there wasn’t actually much in this category), but to be honest I think if we did that we’d be missing a great opportunity. What were the really good and necesssary challenges that hit home for you? In a sense, I think we were meant to be offended. Let’s think hard about why we were offended. Is it possible that our version of Christianity has become too “nice” and middle-of-the-road? Let’s not be too quick to dismiss our bold American brother.
I’d love to hear your thoughts – PARTICULARLY on what you thought his best points were and how you’re gonna take up the challenges that were so clearly presented.
