1 Peter 3:7-8 NIV Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.  Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
The men’s breakfast meeting was a resounding success, characterized by meaningful conversation, delicious cuisine, and a sense of camaraderie among participants. As the event drew to a close, there was a palpable feeling of camaraderie and solidarity, with attendees departing with renewed inspiration and a strengthened sense of purpose in their roles within the family. We look forward to future gatherings that continue to foster connection, dialogue, and personal growth among our community of men.
