I’ve been reading the Gospel of John. Chapter six is long and involved and demands a bit of careful scrutiny before it yields its powerful truths. But the phrase that set me to thinking was the grousing of the Jews in Jn. 6:42 when they said, “This guy can’t be from heaven! This is Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know!” It was only then I remembered that this Sunday is Father’s Day.
Jesus refers to “the Father” or “My Father” 10 times in this passage. He refers to His Father with the pronoun many more times. Whatever else we can say about the Triune God and the Persons of the Father and Son, we can affirm the infinite importance of this relationship.
They came through the Great Depression and the Great War (neither of which were great in the sense of wonderful, but did suffice to get dad off the farm and out into the world.) Many dads are veterans of the other wars — Korea, Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan.
So, I ask myself, what can be said about dads that has not already been said? For the most part, they work, they fix things, they drive on long trips, and they may laugh and play — usually at the wrong time.
