Sunday to Monday | The Father We All Crave

“I have a prayer for you and for the millions who have been abandoned by fathers, it is that we would not be arrogant victims, but wounded healers. I can only perceive this as a dignified calling.”                              ~Donald Miller (“To Own A Dragon” pg. 192)

“The Father We All Crave” was the title of Pastor Dave’s sermon on Sunday. The text was from Luke 11:1-4 and Matthew 6:9-12. In addition, a special Father’s Day breakfast was enjoyed by many.

Some things to think about….

· When you pray “Our Father” (Luke 11:2) what does this mean for you?
·
· What images, hopes, dreams, wounds, or other things stir within you?
·
· Who have been the positive male role models and mentors in your life? List the names and give God thanks.
·
· Are there places in your life where you need to allow God to transform you from “arrogant victim to wounded healer” (Donald Miller)?
·
· Dwight Eisenhower said his mother and father made an assumption that set the course of his life – that the world could be fixed of its problems if every child understood the necessity of their existence. Eisenhower’s parents assumed if their children weren’t alive, their family couldn’t function (p. 47, “To Own a Dragon” by Donald Miller). What reflections do you have on this quote?
