We recently completed our Summer Life Training Series in our church in downtown Los Angeles. This time we divided into men and women for our times together. I taught the men a 3-week class entitled, “Men of Steel and Velvet.” We looked in depth at the Bible about what it truly means to be a man. We found that Jesus, the ultimate man, was someone who could be described as a man of steel and velvet. His steel qualities of strength, determination and responsibility were beautifully balanced by his velvet qualities of compassion and humility.
The women were taught by Tommie Owens from Lancaster, California. She did a 3-week series on great women of the Bible. The first week was a study about Elizabeth. Week two took a look at Ruth. And in week three the women studied about Rahab the prostitute.
