An Invitation to You from Chad Fate, Core Team Leader:
I hope everyone is having a blessed summer! I can't believe how fast it is flying by. As the end of summer draws near we are looking forward to another great year for "That Man Is You." We are kicking off the new TMIY year on September 9th at 6:30 am in the Parish hall. I hope to see you there. The great thing about the program is that even if you missed last year, you can still jump right into the program, and benefit.
This year, "A Light To The Nations," considers man in his relationship to his spouse. Heavily influenced by the thoughts of Saint Pope John Paul II, A Light to the Nations takes men on a journey into an important spiritual reality: "The family has been placed at the heart of the great struggle between good and evil, between life and death, and between love and all that is opposed to love." It is modeled on the story of Job from the Old Testament.
The Fall semester sets fourth the vision of the union of man and woman such that "there is none like it in all the earth." Integrating the findings of modern medical science with the writings of Saint Pope John Paul II, A Light to the Nations discovers in the spousal union a unique reflection of the mystery of the Blessed Trinity that is much deeper than mere poetic words. It does not shy from considering the challenges facing marriage and discovers a "culture of death" dangerously close to the edge.
The spring semester will enter into the contemplative mystery of the family. It follows the mystery of the family from the Garden of Eden to Jewish culture to the Passion of Christ to Europe in the Middle Ages to the United States of today. It discovers a hope that will not die and a very specific role for the men of the United States.
I look forward to seeing you in September. If you have never been to a TMIY session or if you have only came a few times, I encourage you to give it a try, you won't regret it. Don't take my word for it, ask any of the men who've attended and they will tell you the same.
This program is for EVERY MAN, no matter your situation, single, married, widowed, divorced, young, old, or wherever situation you find yourself in. This program will help you grow in your faith, be more loving to your family and neighbors and be the Man that God intends you to be.
Please spread the word, invite and encourage others to check it out too (the program is FREE).
God Bless and see you in September as we learn how to be A Light to the Nations!
