A Fathers Day

18 Jun

Many of us on Sabbath Day considered how much our Dads mean to us throughout our lives. Maybe some of us sent him a card or perhaps a present. (Mines still in the post! :)) Some may have even done the dishes…… (Ladies!)

But this got me thinking that it is quite sad that many of the population didn’t even consider their Heavenly Father for one second on that day. Many played Sport or did some work around the house, or maybe just enjoyed the fact that it wasn’t raining. But the all the local churches were not packed out……this should maybe give us a big spur on for this summer, for more of you older folks (being 15 is the worst!) you’ll be heading on GO Teams across the province and I hope this inspires you to bring our Father into peoples lives more.

For any of you who don’t know the grace, compassion, love, justice and glow of God, I would encourage you to get in touch with your local pastor or a Christian friend who you could talk with.

So hopefully we all will remember our Father on Earth and in Heaven more often in our lives, the Bible speaks a lot about how they are to be honoured and respected. I know all of us can fall suspect to that. So lets push on and grow in our walks while we do these simple tasks of remembering who is in charge for a change rather than thinking its us all the time.

Other news………. for the people visiting our sites from SE Asia and the U.S, Welcome and leave us a comment as we’d like to know who you are!
Thanks, Alastair

    Good work Ali. Yea the comments have kinda turned into me and Ali just telling each other how brilliant our writing is! To quote from the movie Titanic “Is there anybody alive out there?”! It’s ironic that the world places Father’s Day on the Sabbath when really every Sunday should be a day dedicated to our Heavenly Father.

    thanks alastair, really encouraging for working with the kids in bailiesmills this week. the amount of roadwork and construction on Sabbath morning in London last week was sickening. an issue worthy of prayer.

    (also a good reminder to phone my dad tonight :-) )

    i’m expecting the first recording of your guitar skills up in the near future.
