As valuable as they are, these meetings are no substitute for daily Christian friendship. Just as our Lord’s first disciples were sent into the world two-by-two, we too should look for at least one Christian companion, a fellow-traveler and advisor with whom to share this stretch of the road. We call that fellow-traveler a Silas. The helper we select will be flawed and weak, like we are, but will nonetheless be willing to hear our story, protect our confidence, and talk with us briefly every day. We will walk together by mutual consent, gracefully accepting the fact that relationships change over time and that few relationships are permanent. Love, honesty, and humility are our watchwords.

Everyone needs a Silas, and anyone can be a Silas. The trouble is, it’s sometimes hard to find a Silas. We want to make that process easier by connecting men with an Available Temporary Silas. If you are willing to be matched as an Available Temporary Silas register here and record a short video message to men needing a fellow-traveler.
