How to Embrace God’s Call to be Fathers to the Fatherless – with Roger Cooke. S3E3

Would you consider fostering? 

Every 15 minutes, a child comes into care in the UK. What can we, as the church, do to help? We were delighted to have Roger Cooke, from Home for Good, on the Legacy Podcast. Roger provides a depth of insight which we (Stephen and Andy) found both inspiring and helpful in considering if fostering is something our families can do.

Join us.

“And he will turn the hearts of fathers” with Willie Patterson

“And he will turn the hearts of fathers” with Willie Patterson

“And he will turn the hearts of fathers”

We had one episode on failing as a father. But what about deep failure?
This is a heavy conversation.

The last verses of the Old Testament, Malachi 4:5-6 says,

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”

Join us as we take a deep dive into this verse, and speak to a man with extensive experience in helping families who have experienced profound hurt find healing and, where possible, restoration.

Willie was the Assistant Director for ‘Family and Child Care’, and then took early retirement to set up Family Spectrum in 2004.

The Impact of a Father. Alf Thompson’s Story

If your children are walking away from faith, this episode is for you.
Alfred Thompson shares with us about the impact of his father.

As they were packing the boot of their car, John Thompson simply invited his grown-up son to read the Gospel of Mark with him. This became the turning point of Alf’s life.

Our thanks to Alf for sharing his story with us and honouring his father.

Full 30min conversation on the Legacy Podcast.

Fathers, never underestimate the power of re-inviting your children back into faith in Jesus.

Standing on grace,
Andy
