Here’s the deal…almost 25 percent of married women who attend church typically go alone, without their husband. That’s you. The guy who sends his family to church while he stays home and takes care of more important things.
And look, I get it. I understand why you don’t want to go to church on Sundays. You have priorities. You work really hard all week, you spend Saturday getting stuff done around the house, and Sunday is your ONLY day to rest!!
Typically, church just isn’t relevant to you. Why would any man want to get dressed up and spend a couple of hours singing feminine love songs to a long haired man you’ve never actually seen before? And when was the last time you ever heard a Pastor talk about things that actually matter to you… work, family, marriage, sex, and money. And even if the pastor did talk about those things, you probably wouldn’t want to hear his perspective because he’s just some sheltered guy who has never experienced the real world, doesn’t have a “real job,” and if the two of you went to high school together, you probably would have beat him up after school.
So, now that we are on the same page. Let me lay out an invitation to you…
The church has tried to get you to “sit still and listen.” But I see Oasis as a place where you can laugh, tell jokes, and have fun. Men have a lot of “acquaintances,” but few brothers. I see Oasis as a brotherhood. Many men are empty and weak, using all kinds of things to fill the emptiness…sex, substances, etc. But I see Oasis as a place where men can find the will to be strong again. The church has tried to get you to “be nice,” but I see Oasis as a place where men like you can be great.
I want to invite you to be a part of this.
A church where a man can be a man again. A place where you’ll hear some rock and roll every once in a while, where you don’t have to walk on ice for fear of someone over hearing a bad word slip out of your mouth, where you can be real, strengthened by a band of brothers, and inspired by a message about things that actually matter to you.
So this Sunday, wake your butt up. Get out of bed, help your wife get the kids ready, and get to church at Oasis. I promise I won’t…
-Bore you to death with information you don’t care about.
-Waste your time
-Force you do girly things
-Ask you for your money
-Make you dress up
-______________ (you fill it in, just tell me in advance)
And hey, when you get here, be sure to find me and give me a fist bump.
Love you, bro.
