It’s official! Today, Whetstone began “sharpening” its first boy. In our first ceremony, during which he symbolically branded his own pair of leather work gloves, we began the process of refining through holy fire.
For privacy reasons, I won’t share much about him right now. Just imagine him as your teenage son, or brother, or nephew or neighbor. He’s a boy who needs help at a crucial juncture in his life. He’s a boy with God-given talents, who is searching like all boys, for his role as a man.
If nothing else, Whetstone Boys Ranch will present him with an authentic vision of what this looks like, according to God’s Word, God’s Son, and God’s Holy Spirit. Please pray that in the coming year, he and the others who will hopefully join him soon, will be convinced, “that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate [them] from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
