“Ancient Stories, Modern Eyes” — Father’s Day Week, part 6

June 21, 2019

From our official United Methodist site —

In Scripture, fathers play a dominant role as leaders, providers, protectors, and spokespersons for the larger family unit.

It can be a challenge to read these ancient stories with modern eyes.

Yes, times have changed, but there is still much to learn about human nature and redemption from how God uses biblical fathers, despite their imperfections, in the creation and salvation of the world.*

I think my favorite part of that paragraph is “there is still much to learn.”

Let’s pick up right there tomorrow.

Because yeah, “there is still much to learn.”
