Whether you spend a lot of time on Instagram, Pinterest & Facebook, or not – our lives often travel in parallel with social media.  It is human nature to show and share only our best and leave the broken parts of our lives and hearts “unpublished.”  But it is in our weakness that we appreciate God’s strength.  Without the cross, the story it tells and the righteousness it proclaims, all that’s left of a man is dead, selfish, self-centered and self-loving.  Crossmen Conference is a chance to be real with each other, to admit brokenness, and celebrate the forgiveness, strength, love and identity that are ours in Christ Jesus.  The world doesn’t need perfect men with perfect lives – there will always be enough more than willing to fake it.  The world, the church, our loved ones all need, and we need to know ourselves as – men + cross.
