Some songs...

...are so relevant that it's scary. Enjoy a Father's Lullaby.

And just so moms don't feel left out...

Couldn't have said it better myself...

Brad Bergfalk writes -
I consider myself one of the luckiest persons alive because I get paid to do what I love. Even though there are times when the challenges of what I love exceeds my capacity to keep from complaining about it, I still consider being a pastor one of the best vocations around.

Beware your bias...

I am constantly reminded of how where I live exerts a bias on how I interpret reality. We all have a bias...and because of that we should be slow to jump to the conclusion that we understand anything completely. I found a quote by Lesslie Newbigin today that just reminded me of this fact.
"My confession of Jesus as Lord is conditioned by the culture of which I am a part. It is expressed in the language of the myth within which I live. Initially I am not aware of this as a myth. As long as I retain the innocence of a thoroughly western man, unshaken by serious involvement in another culture, I am not aware of this myth. It is simply 'how things are'...No myth is seen as a myth by those who inhabit it: It is simply the way things are." (Christ and Cultures, pg.3)

Beware your bias. Ask God for wisdom to see from the perspective of another. You might be surprised at what you find.
