Question: According to the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this is one of the fastest growing groups in the United States. What group is it? 
Answer: Stay-at-home dads! They now number 214,000 men.

In addition there are about 1.8 million single fathers in the US. Whether single, stay at home, or otherwise, we are thankful for the faithful fathers and father figures in our lives. 

When Jesus' disciples asked Him how they should pray, He told them to start with "Our Father, in heaven..." God identitifies Himself as our loving Father, but sometimes it's hard to know what that looks like when God is Spirit, and especiallly if our fathers with skin on may not have been the best examples. Today we are going to hear from some of the fathers in our community about what being a father has taught them about God the Father. We're excited you are with us for some sacred story telling.
