Disappearing men

Thomas Edsall has written a profound, if rather sad and troubling, essay on the The disappearance of men. While it is true that the CEO ranks are dominated by men, it is also true that at the other end of the spectrum, men are falling apart and being outpaced by women. Unable to marry, they are losing the civilizing influence of matrimony. I have written on this before in the context of the loss of jobs that men used to do. How,,if at all, I wonder can the church create, actually recreate, groups for men that would provide both a safe haven and a launching point.
