Father’s Day 2022 – Who’s Your Daddy?

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day
I realize that has many different meanings for everyone.

In my case it is a day to reflect on the collection of dads I had.

Let me explain.

My Dad died before I was 2 years old. My Mom was wise enough to surround me with male mentors to come alongside and share life with me.

George J – taught me to work with wood to build custom furniture, play golf, and baseball.
Dan W – taught me tennis and fishing.
Jack W – was my Scout leader who introduced me to salvation with Jesus Christ.
Col Gaines – management and leadership
Wayne Stark – confidence and vision
And there were others, many others.

My definition of manhood became a woven tapestry of attributes these noble souls shared with a young fatherless boy.

I am forever grateful to those men. They weren’t corporate giants. Rather they were hard-working, salt-of-the-earth kinds of men.

I had a chance to preach at my church for Father’s Day several years ago. In that message, I shared more about this experience. There is a recording I’ll share below.

To all the Dads out there – Happy Father’s Day
