Dear West View
Welcome to worship on Father’s Day. We extend a special welcome to those joining us for the baptism of little Olivia van den Berg.
On this Father’s Day, let us celebrate the many reflections of father-like love. We celebrate step-dads and adoptive dads. We celebrate grand-dads and uncles. We celebrate all men who rise up to God’s call to be loving mentors to children in their sphere of influence. And we give thanks to God for those fathers who have passed away, but whose legacy of love lives on in us. Most of all, let us give thanks to God, our heavenly Father. Psalm 68:5 reminds us that God is “a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows”.
In gratitude and grace
