  4. I heard Crawford on Family Life some time back and he said something like… you live life in a dash and he referred to the dash between your date of birth and date of death as if to say that the dash is a good representation of how short life is. Can you give me his exact quote and is it in one of his books?

    Any suggestions about how to follow up with folks that are showing these symptoms,
    & also those that have slowly went thru this cycle, but have just stopped attending over the past month, or six weeks?
    Thanks, Paul

I don’t ordinarily comment however I decided I should at the least thank you for doing an extremely good job. Appreciate it and keep up the fantastic work.

  12. This is a really great study for me, Must confess that you’re one of the very best bloggers I actually saw.Thanks for posting this informative write-up.

  13. I admire your web page , it’s filled of lot of information. You just got one perennial visitor of this site.

  14. My favorite Leadership web site right now: briandoddonleadership.com. Outstanding! Check it out.

  15. Doing a study on “Why Men Hate Going to Church?” Why is Christianity, started by a man and His twelve “male” disciples, predominately attended by women?
    2 out of 3 church attenders today are women! Overseas, many churches are down to 5% men. Women are stepping up and leading, doing their best, but because of a shortage of men, sadly they are starting to burn out. The church is strongest, healthiest, when both a strong masculine and feminine spirirt are present. I fear we are losing our men and boys to an increasingly “feminine-friendly” church. And, the gender gap is widening each year!! Anyone with insight, experience with this??

    • Charles,

      I think there is a definite feminization that takes place in churches. For instance, when you walk into a church lobby, what do you see – a flower arrangement or a harley? The best resource out there for you is a book by David Murrow entitled “Why Men Hate Going To Church”. I think you may already be reading it. Murrow gives the best insights.

      Thanks for subscribing. I look forward to communicating more in the future.

      Have a blessed evening,

      • Brian,

        Yes, I have been reading “Why Men Hate Going to Church”. Amazing book. LOL!
        I would definately tend to gravitate towards the Harley over the Flower arrangement. He has a new DVD out on this subject. I hope to get it soon. I’ll let you know how it is. It is great to finally see some attention on this touchy topic. It’s so important to the future health of our church. I’m a Men’s Pastor, so any insights you have would be great. I look forward to talking to you!

        God Bless!

  16. Hi, nice to meet you !

  17. Brian,

    I attend AUMC as well with Lenis Black and am the Chair for our Men’s Ministry. I was given your name and website through Lenis. Your web site is amazing and very inspirational. The reason for my reply is to know if you would be interested speaking to our Men’s Ministry for our monthly breakfast meeting or another time as well. We meet the first Sunday of ever month at 7am and have breakfast and a speaker gives a testimony or a great lesson. Let me know if that is possible. Thanks a lot and God Bless!

    Chris Derrick

  18. Brian, Hope and pray that you are doing well. Love the website. I just had a meeting with Lenis Black this morning. He recommended that I speak with you. Looking forward to hearing from you.
