Father's Day reminds us to take time remembering all that fathers do for their families throughout the year: the hours they work to make life easier for their family, for the headaches and the heartaches of leading a family, for the endless and quiet sacrifices, and for dads just doing the best that they know how —thank you, dad.
It's also a wonderful opportunity to remember the fun times with dad- the laughter, the games, the trips to the beach, maybe the fishing trips and that whopper that got away. The world outside the family is dark enough. It's wonderful for families to build bright, happy memories with dad, even if it's fun, silly moments like dad tossing mum into the pool fully clothed- and lived to tell the tale.
And so, Hinterland Baptist Church is taking this special time of the year to highlight the important role of fathers in the lives of our families. We know there are countless days throughout the year when their influence and love make a difference- so many times when, in word or action, they point us to our ultimate Father. So, we thought it might interest you to learn a lit more about some of these special fathers.
