Project D.A.D. – Who’s Your Daddy?

For some, fatherhood is a picture of ruthlessness and pain. For others, it’s synonymous with security, love and provision. For most, it spells neglect and abandon. But what was God’s intention for fathers and fatherhood?. This October, come and discover the original blue prints behind every father.

  • Week 1: What’s a Father Got to Do with it! (The difference a father makes)
  • Week 2: Wounds of a Dad! (Imperfect dads wound us, and we need to deal with those wounds and move on.)
  • Week 3: The Father Blessing (We all need a blessing by a dad – and in spite of our circumstances, we can receive that – single mum homes, absent dads, poor or bad fathers, etc.)
  • Week 4: God the Father! (God wants to father us as his sons)

  2. Dear Pastor Mbevi,

    Thank you for the inspiring sermon on project DAD. Hugs, love, encouragement and affirmations are indeed important to a child in today’s’ world and can make the difference between a well adjusted individual and a maladjusted one.
    There is a generation however now currently in their 70’s to 80’s who were culturally socialized differently from today’s modern parent. I am 53years old and a product of this mode of parenting which did not openly express its emotions. They kept their emotions under a tight lid and simple expressions like “I love you” let alone a hug did not exist. My father has never openly expressed love or hugged any of us and now that he is 80 it’s doubtful that he will. He however exposes it covertly through his deeds/actions. Women however are more flexible and mother made a deliberate effort to learn/change and now hugs all her loved ones. Unbelievably despite this earlier lack of expression they were God fearing incredibly responsible, caring and loving parents. We never lacked anything, they were always present for the family and they sent us to the best educational institutions in Kenya and the world.
    This caring and love has extended to their grandchildren. An example in point was when our University student son had a motor a non-injury motor accident in Prince Edward Island, Canada last year. We talked to both our son and daughter via telephone after the event and they confirmed that he was fine apart from the vehicle which was written off. Upon informing mother she did not appear altogether satisfied with this explanation. Thereafter on her own volition she secretly travelled to Canada; visited them for a week and made the gracious step of purchasing a replacement vehicle for him. To us this enormous sacrifice of time and resources was a tremendous act of love. We concur with psychoanalyst and author Dr. Scott .M. Peck when he states that love is not a “feeling” but a “continuous act of caring even during times when loving feelings have ebbed or faded”.
    My purpose of writing this mail is to discount the notion that all of the people who do not openly or visibly display emotion are unloving. They just didn’t know anything better as regards overt expressions yet they can be very loving and when one is amongst them it is almost palpable. It is like one can actually feel it and after such an experience one feels highly energized and elated with positive feelings of love. God Bless.
