What Women Really Want?

From FoxNews...Ubersexuals Leaving Metrosexuals at the Spa

I didn't even know the term, 'metrosexual', was even a word until a co-worker explained it to me. I still don't know if I fully understand the word. I mean, outside being a swimmer and competitive bodybuilder, why would a guy shave his chest in the first place? No hot blooded Irishmen I know shave their chests!

This article takes the viewpoint that women don't want a guy who's full of himself. No, they want a man who takes out the garbage, without complaining, and washes dishes, without being told to. I vacuum and do the laundry (hint: Don't mix reds with the whites. I've never done this, but my father has. It's not pretty.). I've been doing it for years. Now women want this in their man, plus love and stability. Good for them. Hopefully, this time, they'll remain this way.

Nothing like pink underwear to prove your ubersexuality.

Atlanta is a big spot, where exactly are you?

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner...I live in Roswell. We are Georgia Bulldog and, of course, Braves fans.

What about you?

Hey Mark,
We are in Flowery Branch. My son is a Bulldog fan, but I claim no allegiance soze I can antagonize everybody.

Enjoyed your piece on Miller at your other blog. My perception of him from Catalyst was the same: what you see is what you get.

Mark said...

Yes, I agree with you on Don. He's very good with reaching people relationally.

I'm sure there could be a bone of contention (maybe in SBC circles?) between 'relationalists' and analytical thinkers on reaching people for Christ.

What has been your experience in reaching people?

My current experience is that people want to be loved not "preached at." If I can't love the truth to them, then I can't place blame of them for rejecting it. If I don't "look like" Jesus, why should anyone believe what I have to say about Him?

This has been a very, very hard transition for me, but by God's grace, I am beginning to get it.

I've met with a number of pastors lately who are going through the same thing.

David Slagle, pastor of Veritas Church in Decatur, Georgia, is doing a great job engaging the culture without compromising the Gospels.

I believe there's a change coming in the way of pastoring...
