Sunday at St. Stephen's Cathedral, Nairobi

We have back through Nairobi on our way home. Thanks to arrangements by my friend from the Lambeth Design Group, Bishop Joel Waweru, we received an invitation to pray and preach at the Cathedral, with a bright and able young dean, a remarkable choir, and plans for an ambitious community youth center.

I was especially struck, in the middle of each service, a celebration of young men graduating from ‘Man Enough,’ a program of encouragement, challenge, and formation for Christian young men. I believe we too could use just such a program, adapted to our circumstances, for a generation struggling to find its way. We too need to make initiation in Christian manhood tangible.
