In recruiting a crew for his 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition the British polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackelton posted the following announcement:
MEN WANTED for Hazardous Journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.
He received 5,000 responses for the 27 available positions!
There is something inside us that responds when we are challenged. With that in mind here's a challenge for the men at Mountaintop.
Wanted Eighty Men. April 25 and 26 Mountaintop Men are getting off the mountain for Men’s Retreat - A Better Way. We will explore what it means to be a better man and what we must do as men to serve one another, our families, our church, and most importantly, our God. Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we get it wrong and God has something to say about both. There will be personal stories from men who have faced real challenges. They will share how they confronted and overcame them and how they now have healing through their relationship with Jesus Christ. Location: YMCA Hargis Retreat in Chelsea – we know you don’t need directions – real men never ask for directions. Cost: $70 (Food, lodging and t-shirt included – and scholarships are available.
