Church for Men?

A recent Commentator asked what advice I had for getting men back into church life. I did’t have much advice (Peter at With a Grain of Salt might have more), but I googled “men in the church” and found David Murrow’s companion site to his book “Why Men Hate Going to Church” called “Church for Men”. There they have this image:

It is a good image of many protestant congregations. It would be a good image of the Catholic Church in the West too, but for “Men’s Ministry” we should replace “Men Ministers”, ie. the Clergy.

“Church for Men” proposes a “new model” which–surprise, surprise–looks like this:

Again, this would be a great model for the Catholic Church too (with the slight modification that some of the male figures in the circle would have little white collars on them!)
