Fatherhood – The Core of the Universe

Happy Father’s Day, all you dads!!

Father’s Day is a not a just a warm, sentimental day that allows fathers to get a new tie and maybe a nap. It includes that, which is wonderful, but celebrating fathers is so much more for Christians.

HERE is an article that The Gospel Coalition asked me for and were kind enough to post for Father’s Day.

It explains what Fatherhood means in the Christian story, which is centered primarily in an always-existing relationship between a Father and a Son, marked both by boundless love and excruciating, unthinkable drama.

It is good for all Christians to appreciate how rich and profound our faith is, and Father’s Day reminds us to think about the most foundational and intimate aspect of our faith.

One Response to Fatherhood – The Core of the Universe

    Thank you for your post. It’s time we got it right as God outlined – marriage and parenting. I wish the world would understand. The father’s role is so critical in the foundation and future lives or our kids. We’ve been reading a great new, actually renewed book, I think all dads with daughters would enjoy. We’re loving it, so I have to share… It’s called “She Calls Me Daddy: 7 Things You Need to Know About Building a Complete Daughter,” by Robert Wolgemuth. Originally released in the 90s, it was a best seller. His girls are grown up and give their own input along with their husbands who are daddies to girls. I understand 40% of the book is new material. It’s so unique in this way. Robert puts the anxieties of Daddy raising his girl(s) to rest, guiding you through challenges and good times – protecting, conversation, affection, discipline, laughter, faith, conduct. So great for helping daddies learn to lead, love and cherish. I highly recommend it!
