Bullseye with a Crooked Stick
We were all children (and some of us still are) at one point in our lives, and some of us are currently parents and soon-to-be parents. How do you raise your children? What is the relationship like with your parents? We as parents are always trying to figure out how to make sure our children grow up to be responsible adults, and as sons and daughters, we want to make sure we appease our parents and not get in trouble. There is also a growing interest in the role of the father in the household and the importance of a father figure in a child’s life. In many of todays homes the children seem to be dictating the nature of parenting but the parents don’t seem to know how to battle against that. What makes it even more difficult is the fact that we live in a world in which we are told and taught something different everyday, whether that’s cultural, societal, educational, or governmental; even advices from friends and family change by the hour.And when it comes to proper parenting there are a plethora of theories and methods of effective parenting that are constantly thrown at us. Pastor Clete goes straight to the Scriptures which has, is, and will continue to remain unchanging. We see in Paul’s letter to the church of Ephesus how he makes it clear that children must obey their parents, and how fathers are to discipline their children. You can hear this message on children’s and father’s relationship with one another from Ephesians 6:1-4 HERE.
Our last worship at the park for this summer will be in two weeks, August 17th at Gordon Park. Make sure you get in touch with Josie and Essie and ask them how you can help with the food, setup, or breakdown!
