The whole generation is womanized, the masculine tone is passing out of the world; it’s a feminine hysterical, chattering, canting age. — Henry James (1886) Finally Modernism, which denies and abolishes every difference, cannot rest until it has made woman man and man woman, and, putting every distinction on a common level, kills life by placing it under the ban of uniformity. — Abraham Kuyper (1898) Don't you ever say that again about your fathers, because they are not cowards. You think I am brave because I carry a gun; well, your fathers are much braver because they carry responsibility, for you, your brothers, your sisters, and your mothers… I have never had this kind of courage. — The Magnificent Seven (1960)

Maybe Eugene Peterson can help: "Every congregation is a congregation of sinners . As if that weren’t bad enough, they all have sinners for pastors.... There’s nobody who doesn’t have problems with the church , because there’s sin in the church . But there’s no other place to be a Christian. "

About 18 years ago, the men of Trinity Presbyterian Church began gathering monthly for “Trinity Tavern Thursday.” This is a letter I sent out to the congregation to explain what we were doing and why. It’s republished here for a new generation of men at TPC, in the hopes that the TTT tradition will be carried on for decades to come.
