Mighty Men at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... I've always been a big fan of men... and I've always appreciated their company. This is not a declaration of my sexuality... it's a simple statement that I like and (dare I say) prefer the company of men.

For many years I complained that we didn't have enough male participation in the RCIA process. Not only on the team, but also in the catechumenate. But all of that has changed dramatically. Not only do we have outstanding men on our team... we have a great group of male participants as well.

Tonight, my whole group consisted of men (with the exception of a couple of female sponsors.) These men ranged from early 20's to mid 50's. They come from various backgrounds, with different upbringings and dramatically different lives. I have such tremendous respect for these guys... for what they represent and for what they bring to the process.

So at 8:11... we were at break, but our discussion continued. I am so thankful for the opportunity to learn from these guys.
