The theme for Men’s Ministry this year is the word GO. It’s a very simple word that means to move or proceed – especially to or from something. It also means to leave a place, to depart.  It’s interesting that the dictionary spends as much time defining the word GO in the context of leaving as it does in the context of moving forward.
