It’s no coincidence that the anniversaries of Father’s Day, Juneteenth and the overturning of Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) coincide, this year, during the month of June.

America and indeed the rest of the globe seem to be teetering on the brink of disaster.

Calamity in the midst of a June-filled season of anniversaries is very much with us.

It's naïve, if not outright dangerous, to believe we are in peacful, or otherwise tranquil times. However, it has always been thus, and the one concurrent constant is that God is with us — always.

Meanwhile, there is actual a cry of repentance sweeping America and the globe.

Indeed, as my AFPI colleague Jack Brewer points out, there is truly an awakening to a fatherhood crisis in America.

On the wings of awareness there are solutions which have orginated with "stirrings," that is prayers of repentance.

Having been raised by God-fearing patriarchs and matriarchs, I can’t say enough about the importance of honoring our parents. Fathers in particular during this season.
