A liturgy for Father’s Day

David McNeish

Digital download: A liturgy for Father’s Day, including two songs. The Bible is an uneasy place to find out about fathers – stories of human failure and frailty abound. Yet Joseph does not abandon Mary when he finds out that she is mysteriously pregnant … And Jesus dares to call God ‘Father’. Repeatedly. … What if fathering has a future beyond the bounds of patriarchal oppression? 8 pages.
