Samson guys are traveling-companions on a great spiritual adventure, not grim pilgrims on a death march to personal holiness. We challenge each other daily to believe the incredible news that God actually knows us, loves us, and has restored us to himself. As we follow Christ together, we find our lives progressively interrupted by righteousness, peace and joy.
We are not a church. We are simply one extension of the church universal.
We are not an “accountability group.” Instead of living our lives separately and reporting (or lying) about our progress, we try to live our lives together.
We are not a “men’s group.” Okay, so there are no women, but that doesn’t make us a men’s group, does it? Please. Most of us have had it up to here with men’s groups.
We are not a 12-step group. Many of us attend 12-step groups and are grateful for them, but our addictions do not define us, and we do not segregate our membership by behavior.
We are not perfect. Not even close. We are broken individuals, but in our fractured fellowship we find a foretaste of God’s approaching re-creation.
All of the essentials of the Samson Society are described in a one-page document known as the Charter, and a Recommended Meeting Format can be downloaded free of charge here.
