The Many Sides of Santa Claus
Ho! Ho! Ho! That's right, though Thanksgiving is next week, Christmas is right around the corner. To get you in the mood, the Men's NetWork produced a single-session Bible study, which is hosted by Rev. Ken Klaus, Speaker Emeritus of The Lutheran Hour. In it, he examines a man who, next to Jesus Christ, is the most notable figure of the holidays -- the jolly old man himself, St. Nicholas or Santa Claus, as we know him in Western culture. Dating back to the third century, St. Nick is attributed with the doing of a veritable multitude of kindly acts and generous benevolences.

An Ancient Tool in a Modern Guise
That's what you have when you own a Men's NetWork pocketknife. Smartly styled with a pewter/flat-black finish and arriving in its own belt-friendly, tight-weave, carrying case, this sturdy, lock-blade knife is a keeper from the word, "go." A favorite since we first offered it, it's yours on one condition: you send us a qualifying picture that features you -- or some other -- fashion-conscious gent wearing a Men's NetWork cap or shirt in front of a recognizable landmark. That's all it takes. Getting this fine premium is really quite simple, wouldn't you agree?

Have We Said, "Thank You!" Lately?
As always, we are heartily grateful for any and all contributions made to the Men's NetWork. Dollars given to help fund creative development tell us a couple of things. They let us know that though most of what we offer is free, users understand there's a cost to offering these resources. They also signal a vote of approval and thanks for what the Men's NetWork is and seeks to become: a one-stop source of quality ministry materials that are Christ-centered in content and outreach oriented in character.

Happily Ever After?
I enjoyed fairy tales when I was young. I don't think I'm alone on that because those same stories continue to be passed on from generation to generation -- even turned into TV shows and feature films. Why so popular? Because in the end they all live happily ever after. But experience teaches us that's not how real life works. Throughout our lives we will continue to struggle with various problems: sorrow and heartbreak, financial struggles, relationship problems, sickness and, finally, death. Whatever we may have thought as kids, fairy tales don't come true.

Men's NetWork Bible Studyl:: Mormons: Who They Are, What They Believe
(Includes subtitles in English) The Mormon Church (aka The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) means different things to different people. From its feel-good, family-oriented TV commercials to its Grammy- and Emmy-winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir to its bicycling missionaries, the Mormon Church is high profile all the way. Founded in the early 19th century, this religious movement boasts more than 15 million members and 85,000 missionaries, ranking it in the top five of "Christian denominations" in the U.S., according to the National Council of Churches.
