Fatherhood Series -Take the Next Step

I awoke today with this thought turning over in my mind. The ancient philosophers had a saying, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” and this is more than a truism, it is a reality. If we do not start, we will not ever arrive at our destination. No matter the […]


Fatherhood Series – Priests and Prophets? 1

I was brought up in a religious tradition that included men in long black robes that lived in a cloistered life style, so whenever I hear the word, “priest” this picture enters into my mind.

Fatherhood is a Calling – Part 2

I ended my last blog with this thought:”Out of all the titles that God could have chosen for Himself, He chose Father. Why?

Hmmm.” The Sovereign, All-Knowing, All-Loving, All-Wise, All-Powerful, […]

While I do not watch the current crop of TV shows, it is impossible to avoid the onslaught against fatherhood. The sitcoms portray fathers as remote control addicts […]
