Why does Western culture not have clear initiation rites of passage for young men? Historical Father Absence is ultimately a spiritual batlle.
Jesus lived in a little platoon of twelve men, trained, invested in and released them. We have a blueprint to follow, so why do we not follow it? Mentors and spiritual fathers who know their calling are needed. Men who have walked through and come out the other side of their own father wound. There was a battle to fight but six hundred men went missing in action including the leader. But two men lived in a bigger story and were willing to face death to call these six hundred men out of their caves onto the battlefield. Being the Beloved son of the Heavenly Father is key to living in His bigger story.
