Stats, Retreat, and a worthy quote!
For Every 10 Men in your Church:
10 are struggling to balance work and family.
9 will have children who leave the church.
5 will have a serious problem with pornography.
4 will get divorced.
Only 1 will have a Biblical Worldview.

A Big part of the Men's Retreat was a study of 1 Peter 1. The above stats were in context of what Harry had experienced in his own ministries.
One of the things that stood out to me was a prayer of one of the guys there. His prayer that we "Produce Reproducing Disciples". That are time is limited so use it wisely.
