As Father's Day approaches on Sunday, June 21, 2020, I can't help but reflect on my late father and the lessons he taught me about life, love, and living. And speaking of fathers, during this time of crisis, it's more important than ever to remember that we're all brothers and sisters of the Father. I hope you'll join me in praying for our country, for peace, and for understanding.

I lost my worldly father in 2007 and these scriptures have given me comfort throughout the years. I hope they give you comfort as well. Happy Father's Day!
