“6:30? A.M.? They’re kidding!” Those were my thoughts as I politely declined an invitation to attend a Men’s Ministry session a while after they had started. Then the prospects one week of a “late” start (8:00) and free breakfast broke down my resistance. That was in November 2015 and I’ve missed only a few meetings since. Why? Because the sacrifice of rolling out of bed that early on Saturday is far more than offset by the rewards gained by it. The unique opportunity to share the thoughts, experiences, and insights of a group of fellow Christian guys has helped me improve a sorely lacking prayer life and reinforced my attempts to live a more faith-filled life as a disciple of Christ. These rewards are concrete and I gain so much more than I give. I’m hooked. And “Thanks”, guys.
