“In the good we do, we are just ‘little-Christs’ to each other.” – Dr. Martin Luther
Our grandfathers’ generation knew the importance of true male friendship. We long for the same. Why then do more than 2.5 million American men say they have no close friends? Friendship gives value to the day-to-day grind of life. We all need good friends and yet often we cannot say why. We will explore the counter-cultural idea of male friendship and why we all need at least a few good friends. Further, together we will explore how and why friendship is a means by which we do good by being little-Christs to each other as we forgive one another in the name of Christ through true male friendship.
