In a sermon scheduled to fall on Father's Day, Rev. Stephen Milton shares on the biggest Father figure of them all - God.
In earliest Christian time of teh Greeks and Romans, a Roman father was in charge of everything and had complete power over his family. It was this model that initially gave birth to the title "God, the Father".
That model and way of thinking has long been replaced with different metaphors more in keeping with today's lifestyles and thinking. Metaphors matter. And so does our sense of our God, in all its descriptives.
