Today was Father's Day.  These kinds of holidays are great fun in our little congregation.  We celebrate fathers.  Fathers influence us most when they are not trying to influence us at all.  Many times fathers influence other kids besides his own.  We shared stories today about how other people's dads had great affects upon our lives... and perhaps our own fathers were inspiration to the other kids.  Many stories were told today about fathers who made sacrifices for principle when it was not good for him or his career.  And so they teach us to do the right thing even if it is not the easiest way.  Dads show us how hard people can work toward their goals.  Dads have goals.

Peace,

Rick
