Boys' Rites of Passage

Our Sons' Futures

The Ascension Dinner

Ascension Dinner

 

This dinner is an intimate affair with close family and friends. The dinner gives the young man a chance to talk about the experiences he endured during the “Quest”. Doing so gives him an audience with which to share things he learned in the world and about himself. It is called “The Ascension” because it marks the continuation of the young person’s journey upward and onward to greater achievements. This ends the Rites Of Passage Program, but it is a step forward in the overall transition to adulthood for the young person.

    Kim,

    Thanks so much. Glynne’s growth has a lot to do with our church family. As I’ve said before none of us raise our children alone. Thanks for all YOUR input into Glynne’s life.

    Peace,
    Thomas

    Hey, I am so proud of you. I have watched you grow from an awkward boy to a striking young man. I still remember how shrill your voice used to be, now you sound like Barry White. Contine to receive all the wisdom your dad is trying to impart.
    I encounter youth on a daily basis, who are void of male role models in their lives. Over the years I have witnessed their confusion, lack of respect for female authority, I have witnessed their self-destruction and the quick grave in which they are digging for themselves. You are blessed. One of the best gifts could ever have is your father.
    Since having Daylan, I have only began to understnad the power of a father. Now is your time to soak up all the knowledge you can and inately internalize it into your core. Continue to love the Lord and patiently wait on all the goodness God has in store for you.

    Gerry,

    You and Steve are members of the “village” that has gotten Glynne to this point. Thanks for your love, guidance, and care for his growth. Thanks for being a part of our family.

    Peace,
    Thomas

    Glynne,
    I think you were only three or four years old when Steve and I first moved to Miami. I watched you grow from a handsome little boy into an intelligent, articulate and handsome young man. Actually, you were always handsome,articulate and intelligent. I am so proud of you.

    If you continue to study the scriptures and apply what you learn to your everyday life,you will make it through all of the difficult times that may come your way. Remember this, if you fall get up and if you feel like letting go, hang on — and read my favorite scripture Isaiah 40:28-31.

    I wish you only the best life has to offer.

    Love in Christ,
    Sister Geraldine Hogan
