I have really missed being with all of the men of
One Thing the past two weeks. It’s always such an encouragement to see a room full of men in passionate pursuit of God!
As many of you may know, my mom passed away on March 3rd of this year. That necessitated an emergency trip to Maryland to lay her remains to rest beside those of my dad.
When you add that unexpected trip to a month that already had two other trips on the schedule, it makes for a very busy season of life.
The two other trips, already on the books, were to conferences where we hoped to gain wisdom and insight into how to do what we do better, that is, work with adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities at The PIER Center for Life Enrichment.
At both of the conferences Cindy, my wife, and I had the privilege of meeting many wonderful people from all over North America and even the world. Nearly ever conversation began the same way, “Hi, my name is Hutch, what’s your name?” That question was normally followed by, “Where are you from?” Then the inevitable next question was, “What do you do?”
Whenever you are with tons of people that you have never met before from all over the Nation and especially from around the world, you always get to the question, “What do you do?”
There’s something about the answer to that question that gives you instant insight into the person. From the moment that question is answered you begin a sort of verbal dance.
Either you immediately understand what they do by the title on their business card, or you immediately begin a series of clarifying questions to help you understand that person and what they do better.
If you understand what they do, you normally share some complementary dialogue that let’s them feel safe and connects the two of you in some way.
If you don’t understand, you normally ask all kinds of questions that help you paint a picture in your mind that you can relate to.
This week at One Thing for Men, we are going to ask a very important question: What did Jesus do?
The answer to that question can and will change your life forever!
So my hope is that you will join me, and others, around the tables this Friday morning, 7:00 a.m., at the Cabernet Steakhouse on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta. There we’ll reconnect with some old friends and if we are fortunate we’ll make a new friend or two and be able to ask them, “What do you do?”
Who knows, when all the dust settles, you might just discover something about Jesus, yourself and someone else, that you never knew before!
It is with great expectancy that I will see you there,
