Inviting All Men . . .

Saturday, May 20, Lutheran Men in Mission is sponsoring a "Bold Gathering" for men. It will be at Trinity Lutheran Church Parkland in Tacoma, WA. There is no cost other than a freewill offering basket with lunch. I'm curious about the event and plan to attend personally. If you wish to make a day of it with me I'd be glad to have company.

Time Saturday, May 20, 11 am- 2 pm
Trinity Lutheran Church Parkland
12115 121ST St, Tacoma, WA 98444
Registration Requested, but no Charge to Participate

William will look at how God has worked in his life to transform him into the person you see now. Born in Beijing, China, William's parents adopted him and took him in as their own and shared God's love every day! William will share how God uses trials to overcome evil and spread love.

William Ehlers is a medical scribe in Tacoma, WA and serves at several emergency rooms around Tacoma. He is currently pursuing a career in healthcare and has several years of clinical experience. When he isn't working, he enjoys volunteering at the humane society, running, and painting. Last year he entered his first 5k race and now has a half marathon under his belt. He plans to enter a full marathon and other races next year. 


Living My Purpose
Men are in crisis today for lack of friends. Research tells us that the percentage of men with at least six close friends fell by half since 1990, from 55 percent to 27 percent. The study also found the percentage of men without any close friends jumped from 3 percent to 15 percent, a fivefold increase. Doug will share about the four kinds of friends we experience and how friends have helped him live out his God given purpose.

Doug was one of the writers of the Serendipity Bible for Small Groups (which became the Master Builders Bible for Men). With his wife Doris, he is the author of the InterVarsity Press LifeGuide Bible Study on Jonah, Joel and Amos and Ask or Imagine: Episodes on the Journey to Becoming a Family. Most recently he has been working with nineteen writers from eight denominations/ministries writing Project XII's Lifelines series for men. Doug and Doris are now retired, living in Tumwater. They are the proud parents of Dawn (Mickey) and Derek (Krista) and grandparents of Kayja and Bryce.


With the End in Mind

If death is the "end" for all of us, what should our priorities be? Why it's critical to have an eternal perspective on your life.

Rob started his "Dad, How Do I?" YouTube channel in April of 2020. He thought he would help 30 or 40 people learn some basic skills. A month and a half later his channel went viral, and quickly grew to over 1 million subscribers. Now, almost 3 years later, he has over 4 million subscribers, and is known the world over as the "Internet's dad".

If you think you might be interested in attending check out the website and/or talk with me.
