Read this quote about true manhood:
When a man really gives up trying to make something out of himself — a saint, or a converted sinner, or a churchman, a righteous or unrighteous man, … when in the fullness of tasks, questions, success or ill-hap, experiences and perplexities, a man throws himself into the arms of God… then he wakes with Christ in Gethsemane. That is faith, and it is thus that he becomes a man and Christian.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
