On this Father's Day, visiting priest the Rev. Larry O'Connell traces the history of culture's understanding of fatherhood. God the Father not only created the world but established the framework of values underpinning our culture for millenia. Yet today that understanding has been flipped to diminish the value of fatherhood. This comes despite overwhelming evidence of the need children have for their fathers. O'Connell's conclusion? Father matters.
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
- 2 Corinthians 5:1-10
- Psalm 92:1-15
- Mark 4:26:34
