MOG (Men Only Group)

I’ve heard it said that men are like icebergs. Most of their emotions, thoughts and feelings are submerged beneath the surface of their lives. Many men do not open up about themselves and what is going on for them at work, in their families, in their lives in general and in the Church etc. They suffer silently.   A MOG is an opportunity to support each other in a way that is not therapeutic, but based on solidarity, deep listening, respect and action. Confidentiality is the cornerstone for openness and trust. We could all come together when the MOG wants to meet up – no Agenda, Minutes, bureaucracy, rules or regulation, except that of respect and solidarity. Get togethers could have a speaker who addresses issues that impact men in particular, followed up by discussion on say leadership, authentic masculinity etc, action, a breakfast fry-up with the smoking of cigars and the drinking of whiskey (that’s a joke that last bit…maybe?) and occasional weekends away to undertake varying challenges that build resilience, solidarity, brotherhood and discipleship with Jesus Christ who calls us to sacrifice ourselves, following his authentic model of strong leadership. If you think this is something you’d like to get involved in, a Men Only Group (MOG), give me a call on 01442 391 759. Don’t email me, I won’t reply if you do. I wanna talk with you!
