It has taken me some time to process Monday nights shed experience and gather my thoughts, I hope this reflects the events and gives God the Praise and Glory.
Over 100 blokes rocked up to the Inner Circle Rum Distillery to have a great feed ( a great venue), the steak was not too shabby, and hear the stories of 3 champion men with somewhat differing stories yet the thread of relationships with their Dads was clear. Fatherlessness will leave children venerable to look for fulfilment in some strange places and can lead to much pain, A fathers love that is only seeking recognition for self rather than the release of the man from the son can hold back a man from knowing who he is and from Gods plan. Words said by dads in jest can leave scars that are not visible until later in life.
The best part of the night was that we are not our father and we have a choice to make a line in the sand, accept forgiveness learn to be the man God wants us to be.
The conversations at the start of the night were normal bloke stuff, but the exciting thing by the end was that blokes were wanting to go home to tell their children how proud they are of them, to stand up for their faith, walk alongside a young man in pain with encouragement.
Thank you Lord for using the ordinary to bring Glory to Yourself. This was all about you Lord.
