*CALL TO WORSHIP

In a day when so many men are absent, we cherish the love of our fathers.

Thank God for fathers who comfort and encourage.

Thank God for fathers who build character and inspire us to greatness.

Thank God for fathers who teach morality and model decency.

Thank God for fathers who lovingly convince boys to become men.    

Thank God for brave fathers who have the courage to resist being absent.

Lord, on this Father’s Day, may we encourage more men in our community

 to pick up the mantle of fatherhood!

 

*OPENING PRAYER

*HYMN OF PRAISE #710 (Um hymnal) “Faith of Our Fathers”

*LITANY “Giving Thanks for Fathers Near and Far”

Oh God, we thank you for fathers near, fathers with strong arms and fathers with feeble knees present at table and at bathtub and at bedtime for prayers.

Thank you, God, for fathers near.

We thank you, O God, for fathers far away, fathers who ache for their families, fathers absent because of war, or disease, or despair, fathers who are present and absent at the same time.

Thank you, God, for fathers far away.

We thank you, O God, for caring communities where mothers fill in for fathers and fathers fill in for mothers

And grandparents put on the apron and the towel. Where aunts and uncles, and those who are absolutely no kin at all make our communities a home fit for habitation.

Amen.
