Here are the session descriptions:
Session 1: The World We Made: From the Garden to transgender bathrooms
It’s a cliché to say we live in a broken world. After a few centuries of relative peace and prosperity in the western world, modern culture is falling to pieces, and most everybody knows it. But why? What happened? What changed and why? Who’s responsible?
Session 2: What We Lost: Fatherhood in a fallen world
God is the Father from whom all Fatherhood gets its name. He has written his fatherhood into the world in such a way that we cannot escape it. The authority of God rests in our earthly fathers, be they dads in homes, bosses at work, leaders in government, or pastors in the church. How can every man, whatever his station in life, begin to embrace the fatherhood that God built into him and into the world? And what about women? Well, what about them?
Session 3: What We Found: The effeminate world
As our culture has abandoned the authority of God, men have abandoned the responsibility of working hard, serving the church, and loving their wives and children. The Bible has a word for this: effeminacy. And it calls it a sin. Effeminacy is evident absolutely everywhere in the world today. Everywhere. Even (and sometimes especially) in those who hold to a “biblical” view of sex and church-life.
Session 4: There Is No Superman: Remaking a broken world
Our culture is broken—sexually, morally, ethically, we have lost our way. The only cure is to tell people the truth, and lead them to repentance. But how do we do that? What does it look like?
Breakout 1: An uncensored Q&A on masculinity, fatherhood, and the church w/Tim Bayly (men only)
