"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" - Psalm 133:1
God sees men dwelling together as something AMAZING! To Him, it is something that is as sacred as the anointing oil of the high priest. More specifically it is the first high priest, Aaron himself! It was the oil that marked the high priest as God's man to offer sacrifice for the people and said from God to the people, "This man is MINE!"
It still goes beyond that. To God, the idea of brotherhood is as holy as Mount Zion itself. The dew of Hermon is from the top of Mount Hermon. This mountain has been known for the many blessings it bestows upon those who live in it's shadow. Cool breezes and the melting snow help to combat the heat of the area. So here you have brotherhood referred to as "...the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion..." Here is this revitalizing dew falling upon Mount Zion, the Mountain of the City of God. As worship is a pleasing aroma to God, so too is unity among brothers, a refreshing breeze to God Almighty.
At Tuscumbia, we seek to invoke these feelings and more with the men of our "Forever Family". A brotherhood built on the spiritual truth that God desires us to be united. We seek to be an encouragement to one another: encouraging each other to lift upon our shoulders the mantle of leadership, leading our family, friends, and community, leading through service, action, and attitude, and always focusing on our Father and Creator who seeks a deeper relationship with all of us.
|Men's Prayer Breakfast||Every second Saturday of the month at 7:30 a.m. We meet at the church annex for some home cookin' fellowship and quality time talking to our Father. We pray about different needs and blessings going on in the lives of ourselves, our congregation, our community, and our country. Each month a different sister congregation is invited to partake with us in this awesome time of encouragement.|
|Men's Golf Outing||Many of the men at Tuscumbia have a distinct love for the game of golf. During the warmer season many of us men (those who know the game and even those who just know how to dress the part) gather at one of the many golf courses in the area on a Saturday morning to play in a four man scramble. These golf outings can bring forth competitiveness between us men, but as golfers, we know that the sport affords us extraordinary opportunities for time with others. What other way would we want to spend 4 or 5 hours in the company of friends and fellow brothers in Christ.|
