As promised, I provided manly Father’s Day presents for children who did the homework. Our text for today was Ephesians 5:22-6:3 and the central point was that the relationship between husband and wife explain and help us understand the relationship between Christ and the Church, and likewise, the relationship between Christ and the church helps us understand marriage.
Our children shared things they are thankful for about their dads – - how their fathers protect, provide, love, laugh with, and care for them.
From my end, I was reminded once again why I am one of the most blessed pastors on earth. I so enjoyed meeting with children before the service so that we could see what we were giving their dads. And if you look at the pictures, you will see that I even provided gift bags.
