Through this ongoing series, we want to share theological resources that have helped us grow in knowledge and understanding of the Lord, and appreciation for our shared Christian faith through the wider body of Christ. Whether blog posts, music, books, podcasts, visual art, etc., we hope that you can discover new sources of edification and encouragement.
"Fathers Who Give Hope" by John Piper
"Father’s Day can be a day of celebration or one overshadowed by discouragement. In his message/article, John Piper brings relevance to Father’s Day as he points our hope back to our heavenly Father. As women, may we take Piper’s words to heart and seek to be God-confident, finding our hope rooted in Christ alone, and point our own fathers, husbands, and sons to God as well." –Lindsay
"How to Have What All our Hurting Hearts Want Most This Father's Day" by Ann Voskamp
"Ann’s message is deeply moving, as she reminds us of what so many crave—to be wholly accepted and loved. Her message of who God is as our Redeemer, who knows our hearts even before our creation, seeks to remind us of the One who has fulfilled every longing. In Christ, in taking Him as Lord, as Voskamp says, 'you can exhale the relief of the awed grace of something you’ve longed for…You have your Father and all you’ve ever really wanted.'" –Lindsay
"No Longer Slaves" by Bethel Music
"Being a child of God means rejoicing in the truth that God is my ultimate Father. As I listen to the words and worship through this song, I want to praise God for the gift of the ultimate freedom He has given me as a child of God—our God is such a gracious and good Father. Let's worship Him this Father's Day!" –Lindsay
