Masks Men are taught from a very young age to wear a "mask" and hide themselves behind it. We are shown John Wayne and Superman and told that we need to be tough, not feel pain, show no emotion, and be "tough as nails". Getting to know another man can be very difficult because of this. Many churches that have Men's groups never get past the masks and don't grow because of it. Recently, after viewing posts by a number of members, I have noticed that the longer someone is on the BOC. The more they let their mask slip off. The more of themselves they show in each and every post. In this way, the BOC is improving each of our lives. Thank you, For letting down your masks, and letting us get to know the "REAL" you!
