My colleague, and director of the Hines Center for Spirituality, Brooke Summers-Perry, recently recommended a movie for me to watch. We downloaded it from Netflix last night and sat transfixed as it played.
I want to urge you to watch it. Pay particular attention toward the end of the film at the statistics that are shown.
For decades I have given attention in my counselling practice to the plight of men, especially those who fall into the category of "men in mid-life crisis." The problems in the male culture are not getting better - only worse. The first step toward creating change is awareness.
I'll make you a solid promise. If you watch this film, if you persuade your adult children to watch this film, you will be not only grateful but also affected.
