On Sunday night, 3 June, we screened the movie “Courageous” at Bedfordview. The event was very well attended by about 600 people. Thanks to all those who shared the evening with us, it was a resounding success.
Courageous tells the story of a man who, after a family tragedy, is deeply challenged by what it means to be a good father. Along with four friends, who are also dads, he starts to dig into what the Bible says about being a father. Through the circumstances that play out in each one’s life, they have opportunities to apply the things they have learned.
It is a moving film with clear challenges to all, but especially dads. I personally felt challenged to assess my role as a dad and compare it to what Scripture says. In many ways Christianity is about family, so the call to Biblical fathering is an important one. Dads, let’s take up the call and become the fathers God is urging us to be.
