Men… You know one when you see one. But do we underestimate the qualities of a truly distinguished man?


Yesterday was man day at the Timbers. The boys started off the day with bible study, then entered the battlefield of war-ball, and continued on with a series of games and challenges exercising their physical and mental strength.

At the Timbers, the guy campers learn the importance of fulfilling what God has called them to do.

“Chivalry is not dead!” TI men cry.

“We are strong, yet called to be humble!”  they declare in unison.


Men are masculine, but not in the way society defines it. Not through athleticism. Not through stage or school. But through confidence in the Lord. This is what it means to be a man. Men are strong, yet gentle in word and deed. Men have disciplined minds.

Knowing the difference between society’s skewed view and God’s upright view of what it means to be man is an important lesson to learn. This is a little bit of what we talked about yesterday at man day!

Men! Men! Men in the house!
