"The central problem of every society
is to define appropriate roles for the men."
from Male and Female:
A Study of the Sexes in a Changing World (1968)
I was looking through an old file of photos when I stumbled across this one.
There are two men in the picture: my son Aaron (profiled on the right) and my nephew Phil (silhouetted against the flames on the left).
My picture triggered three thoughts.
- It's good to have young men around when you're tending a fire.
- Young men behave differently than old men around a fire.
- Young men enjoy building fires as much as old men enjoy sitting around them.
Acts 28:3 - Paul had collected a large bundle of sticks and was about to put it on the fire.
