One billion rising, and a paltry 50,000 are stepping up

Eve Ensler got one billion rising.  Dennis Rainey, Mark Driscoll and others are are trying to get a large number of men motivated to do……something. And what would they have men do?

Take comfort, men, for 50,000 of your brothers are about to STEP UP! Um…. again. Didn’t we sort of do this already, even got some tee shirts a decade or more ago with Promise Keepers? Well, with the lasting impact that had on familism in the US, its about time someone piled on reinforced the effort.

But seriously, we have enough time to get the turbines in place to make a dent in America’s dependence on foreign energy. The kinetic and frictional energy from the volume of circles rubbed on backs after these events may stop rolling brown outs in your area

 One of the biggest needs in our nation is to challenge men to step up to courageous manhood and meet their responsibilities as husbands and fathers. That’s the purpose of FamilyLife’s one-day Stepping Up Video Event, which has drawn more than 50,000 men so far this year.

There is an all star line up of he man manly men of masculine manly Christian men’s manliness all waiting to man you up, my man:

In the Stepping Up™ video series, Dennis Rainey, Matt Chandler, Robert Lewis, Voddie Baucham, Tony Dungy, Mark Driscoll, Crawford Loritts, and others unpack biblical manhood and what it means to be a godly, courageous man in today’s world. They challenge men to step up, to reach back to younger generations in discipleship, and to point to the future through a personal legacy.

Don’t waste time reading this…..sign up today.

(Could they not at least think up a new catch phrase? Stepping Up……Really?)

(I missed the past two weeks of 33, The Series, but will resume this Thursday, so hey, I’m kinda stepping up myself)

    “One of the biggest needs in our society is to challenge men to step up to courageous manhood and meet their responsibilities as husbands and fathers.”

    I’ve got to see this video. I haven’t laughed this hard since Bob Hope and George Burns were still alive!

    “they challenge men to step up, to reach back to younger generations in discipleship and point to the future through a personal legacy.”

    LOL—I’ve never heard alimony and child support described like that! Man, these guys are a barrel of laughs.

    Are they by chance auditioning to be the new Monty Python team?

    LOL, empath, you have the best sense of humor.

    My husband and I are participating in a small group Bible study at church and the curriculum is “The Art of Marriage” which appears to have been written by the same exact people who are doing Stepping Up. HHG and I are basically there to try to inject some red-pill into the mix.

  3. Ha! So, men will Schlep Up! and we’ll have even better conditions for women?

    Will that give us better quality women?

    It hasn’t worked yet.

    I can’t wait for further opportunities to mock and ridicule the posturing of the stupid.

  4. What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? As men, all of us face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices—let’s call them battles—matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow’s integrity depends on today’s bravery.Dennis Rainey identifies five stages of a man’s journey through life—boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch—and examines a man’s responsibilities at each step. Rainey calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It’s about embracing courage, rejecting passivity and cowardice.Ultimately, you’ll be challenged to be the man on your battlefield.
