Father’s Day

We take time each year to honor and appreciate the fathers in our lives.  Just as we have expanded our metaphors for God beyond the traditional “God the Father” so we have broadened our understanding of who the people are who “father” us.  They may or may not be our actual biological parent.  What makes a father is the relationship — the sustained care and guidance and love.  So we honor all fathers, no matter how they came to the role.
