What is it?
Like it or hate it Father’s Day represents many different things to each of us. Some of us men are fathers, some of us are desperate to become fathers, some of us used to be fathers, and some of us are wishing we’d never become fathers in the first place. Equally we all have a father, some have been and gone, some were never around in the first place and some are still caring for us and looking out for us in the same loving way they always have.
It’s easy to avoid Father’s Day, or just drift through it. It’s just one day after all. But the issue of how you understand the concept of ‘Father’ can’t be avoided. Scottish poet George Macdonald commented that “the one central wrong in the whole human affair, the inability, the one central misery” is “the refusal to look to God as our father”.
So we want to invite you to join with us on Father’s Day, partly to celebrate the fathers we know and love but also to discover how being a father reflects who God is, and explore how we can all play our part in being father to the hurting and broken world around us.
See you there.
