Our Father

June is the month of the MAN.

One of my husband's favorite movie series is Fast & Furious. The movie is so action packed, yet is also thought provoking at the same time. There is lots of comedy mixed into a dramatic theme.

There is no surprise that as we were watching the Fast & Furious 8, I was drawn into the idea of family. In this season of uncertainty, this is the prime time for a new beginning. The prime time for families to come back together. Regardless of what has come in to tear the family apart, to destroy the bond, this is the season to make an uncommon move and return back to the thing that matters the most.

Let us not miss this purposed time to reflect on the role of fathers and the role of Our Father in this season of new beginnings.

Drop me a comment and let me know the role of your father or our Father in your life.

They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
