From the Pastor’s Desk: A Father’s Day Message

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day. In doing so, we honor the men who have a very important role in human society. Fathers are usually burdened with the responsibility of providing for most of the material needs of their children as they grow up. This burden often distances them in some ways from their children. They also often play the role of chief disciplinarian of their children, and they often are the ones who must bring the harshness and the dangers of the outside world to the attention of their children. These necessary roles of providing, discipline, warning and protecting are often rewarded with ridicule and disrespect by our modern society. So, I think we should take care to show our fathers respect, gratitude and love, on Father’s Day and every day.
