The Man Drawer: What’s underneath?

┬áRecently we decided to redo our kitchen, we did it in several stages, first we did the cabinets and changed the doors and the floor…the things that make a big difference very quickly. When we moved into the house we had some lovely disgusting tiles in the kitchen that until recently have still been there. A couple of weeks ago I ripped them off the wall…that was fun!

But what I found behind was some plaster that was fantastic and in brilliant condition, some plaster that had crumbled away and some walls that didn’t even have any plaster on them in the first place.

We thought that it might be good to have some stuff on The Church Sofa that goes alongside this. So whether you’re a man, you know a man, have heard of ‘man’ or simply are not a man keep reading.

The Man Drawer is hopefully going to link in with a lot of the other content on the site…particularly Simpsons Saturday, Noticeboards and Beer. Or maybe some other more spiritual type content as well. But the whole idea is to look at some of the things that might be a challenge for men in the church, it might touch on some of the recent social media discussions about the ‘feminisation of worship song’ for example. And hopefully will be a place for us to challenge ourselves as well as you around how we can be better men of God.

We’d love this to be a discussion and to look at the things that you want us to so if you have any ideas for content in this please let us know either by twitter @TheChurchSofa, facebook or email.
