Jake and Brett talk about the value and importance of brotherhood.
- We can mistakenly equate brotherhood with accountability
- Accountability can become a shame based system
- There is an important difference between guilt and shame…guilt is related to an action, shame is related to an identity
- There is more to brotherhood than negative humour
- There’s a major difference between running for 24 hours alone and running with a brother
- It’s impossible to be close to one hundred men
- Vulnerability is essential in brotherhood but can be overdone
- Brotherhood is knowing, wanting, and choosing the good for your brother
- A basic question to ask ourselves is, “Am I in this brotherhood for him or for me?”
- It is better to say, “I don’t know what to say,” than to try to action you do
- Most of the time brothers don’t need advice, they need strong, consistent presence
- Being a brother calls forth masculinity
- Father wounds and familial brother wounds affect our relationships with other men
- What struck you from this episode?
- What has brotherhood been like in your life?
- What is one way you could be a better brother?
- Did the Father give you the names you call yourself?
