Men mentoring men thru the passages of their lives.
This conversation or discussion is intended to highlight MKP(i) material related to the MKP Mission. As a man starting this discussion I also intend to use this space to highlight a philosophy of Mission and how to structure an organization so that it remains mission centered rather than becoming organizationally centered. Vigorous debate and your personal elaborations of similar or contrary views are more than welcomed, they are the process by which a movement is both created and sustained.
Yours in Mission and Service

Good idea and very timely ! As least for me. I know my NWTP week end mission statement is not adequate and secondly, there is merit in our local MKP organization debating ways & means of becoming mission centered.
Where do we go from here?
