Once upon a time, Your Other Brothers held to the value of brotherhood! But we’ve since shifted this value to one of kinship. Why the change? What does kinship evoke, both for this life and the next, and how do we build or “practice” this value of kinship? When have we felt that sense of belonging outside our blood family, and when have we felt the opposite with our sexuality and masculinity, as strangers and aliens? This second-to-last value in our 7-values series ties nicely with our last value, the other “ship” of discipleship. If kinship means climbing into a boat together, discipleship is setting sail! We hope you’ll join us for the follow-up and finale soon.
