Just coming up for air.
This is a great article. The section entitled Girly-Men Pastors was great just because of the title!
Here are some data in the article I always thought were anecdotally true but now I have some hard numbers:
According to an oft-quoted statistic from Promise Keepers, when a mother comes to faith in Christ, her family follows 34 percent of the time, but when a father comes to faith his family follows 93 percent of the time.
Read the rest of the article. There are more where those came from (Yes, US based, but I’m sure the UK churches will wake up to the same problem).
Churches need to evangelise men, disciple men.
