Webinar: Forging a New Masculinity

“Nice Guys”, “Toxic Masculinity”, Biblical Manhood”? Can we get beyond the stereotypes & forge a better way?

1. How fixed are notions of men and women in the bible? ( Are our cultural ideas of masculinity really sourced from the bible or from Aristotelean/Greek thinking)
2. Does being a man mean being in charge?
3. Should men strive for power? (Or instead embody selflessness and sacrifice)?
4. How can men take some affirmative action to embody a new masculinity?
