This year marks the 25th Father’s Day since my dad passed away. It’s hard for me to imagine he’s been gone for a quarter-century. I’m the youngest of five children, and of all of us, I probably had the closest relationship with our dad. Dad was a “career Navy man” entering the Navy at age 17 shortly before the United States entered World War 2. He ran a “tight ship” at home and was strict with me and my older siblings. When I was three years old, Dad joined a strict, legalistic church that dramatically impacted all of our lives. Church doctrines and culture further amplified Dad’s strict ...

I first remember seeing it when I was a small boy. My father kept it on the top left side of his dresser in his and mom’s bedroom. At the time, I was all of seven-years-old. I loved to wear it around the house, as often as my father would let me. I can still remember how my wrist was so small that it barely stayed clasped and in place above my hand.

Father’s Day has always had special meaning for me. I was born on Father’s Day. At the time of my birth my dad had moved away from North Carolina to Ohio to start a new job. My mom had been advised by her doctor not to travel, so she and my four siblings remained in North Carolina, near most of my dad’s family. The day I was born, Dad’s sister, Aunt Bea, called my dad to let him know he had a new baby girl. But I was born with low birth weight, jaundice, lung trouble and I needed blood transfusions. The doctor was afraid I wouldn’t make it. That was the beginning of a special bond between me, my dad and our heavenly Father. Dad ...

In Christ, fathers can be gracious without being weak, courageous but not insipid, and strong without being overbearing. As we honor earthly fathers let’s consider what God can do in and through them. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR070.mp3
Fatherhood has fallen on hard times. This Father’s Day we need the viewpoint of God as self-imparting Father wholly devoted to those to whom he gives life. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR018.mp3
Fathers just barely came out on top in a survey of 6-year-olds who were asked which they'd miss most: their favorite TV program or their father. In this age of a typical child-man media father that answer is tragic. But that's not the kind of Father God is. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/PTR0224.mp3
