Author: Craig GlassMy greatest joy in life is my family. I know, that sounds like the comment you're supposed to make as a man and father. All I can say is I literally shake my head in wonder at the family I have: my wife Beryl; my daughter Barclay and son-in-law Vince, their four daughters, Bella, Brynn, Brooke and Blake; my son Alec, my son Conor and daughter-in-law Bonnie, their daughter Gemma and son Calvin. Every one of them is a genuine gift. Beyond that, I have a calling that I live out through Peregrine Ministries. It is to help men: Understand their identity in Christ, Embrace their role as men, and Live out their God-given calling in life. Bottom line is I'm convinced men matter and I want to help them live life on purpose.

In recent conversations, we’ve had heart-to-heart talks on issues related to employment, life-calling and the economy. I found myself relating deeply not only to their own […]

3 Kinds of Men

In his excellent book, From Wild Man to Wise Man, Richard Rohr reveals a good lesson for men from Luke 6:6-11. In this familiar story, Jesus heals a man whose right hand is withered only to encounter the condemnation of the Pharisees. He points out that there are three kinds of men in this story: […]

The Man Who Amazed Jesus

I just read a story about a man who stood out so much, he amazed Jesus, who went on to say about him, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” What kind of man could bring about such praise from the Son of God? A humble, faith-filled warrior. Luke […]
