BY MELISSA BELTZ e Sun“13 Bravo 31.” A tinny voice came through on the crackling radio. “13 Bravo 31,” responded the man in the patrol vehicle as he reached towards the computer, ngering the keys while keeping a steady eye on the road. The name on his uniform identifed him as Deputy Rodriguez. “There’s a group of juveniles behind Burger King -one is wearing a red shirt,” said the voice. Deputy Rodriguez sped off towards Burger King. The sun was almost lost below the horizon as he headed down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and turned onto S. Main Street, but the small sliver that still remained washed the earth below in a golden hue. “Ever since I started working here, my sinuses have been so stuffed up!” he said, blaming the vast elds of vegetation for his allergy woes. He reached towards the computer, glancing one last time at the screen before exiting his patrol vehicle now parked in the restaurant parking lot. He walked towards the group of deputies already gathered around four young boys, one of whom donned a red t-shirt. BY MELISSA BELTZ e SunYouth in the Glades area looking for an artistic outlet can sing praise for a new program coming to Western Palm Beach County: a new community choir for elementary school students. Made possible by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fund of the Community Foundation, Choirs in the Glades is an extension of the Young Singers program based out of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach. Young Singers brings approximately 350 kids in second through 12th grade together each week to sing classical, Broadway, blues, folk and even pop music, which the kids perform twice a year at different venues. The 350 participants are broken down into six different choirs, based on age and ability, and come from 90 different schools in Palm Beach County. According to Beth Clark, executive director for Young Singers, the program was created to ll the void left by funding cuts to music programs in schools. “About 11 years ago, the three founders got together, along with others in the community, to talk about how funding was being cut to music programs in schools. They wanted to do something about that. [Young Singers] was founded out of concern for the loss of music education,” said Clark. Young Singers is a “true community choir,” said Clark, but due to the distance between the two sides of the county, families from the western communities may nd it dif cult to get their kids to the Kravis Center for practice. We are grateful for this wonderful opportunity to reach out to a signi cantly underserved segment of our county,” said Clark in a press release issued late last month. “This is also an important rst step in making Young Singers truly a countywide asset to our children.” The $165,000 grant from the Community Foundation provides enough BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY Special to the SunFlorida State House Representative Kevin Rader (D) attended Pahokee’s city commission meeting Tuesday night to update his constituents on the progress he has made as their representative.

The Achievement Ceremony will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the West Palm Beach Marriott, 1001 Okeechobee Blvd. The Homeland Security Specialist college credit certi cate was offered at no cost to the TSA employees by the TSA Of ce of Training and Workforce Engagement. The initiative, called the TSA Associates Program, provides training to TSA employees nationwide through partnerships with colleges and universities. Classes were held at the airport over a three-semester timeframe for the students' convenience. TSA employees from various levels at PBIA earned the Palm Beach State certi cate, ranging from frontline of cers to managers and from those with no college training to some with bachelor's degrees, including a few who had not attended college in 20-plus years. The certi cate gave students an opportunity to increase their knowledge of homeland security studies and share that knowledge with others to bene t the agency. The majority of the students have been with TSA from its inception. Karen Hanlon, TSA federal security director for PBIA, said that the associates program brings higher education directly to TSA employees. "If of cers and others are more educated in areas related to their jobs, they'll do better jobs, they'll feel better," said Hanlon, noting the morale boosting effect of completing the program. "Their dedication to the program was inspiring," she continued. "Several students have families, some with three or more children to take care of, and they stuck with the program while working full time and juggling shift changes, which often meant attending class on their day off or extending their workday." Palm Beach State College developed the new nine-credit certi cate as part of its Associate in Science degree program in Emergency Management. Classes were taught in person by experienced PBSC faculty members: C. Everette Vaughan, Jr., EMS programs director and former EM operations manager for Palm Beach County; Dr. Paul L. Friedman, Criminal Justice department chair and former detective and crime scene investigator for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce; and Col. James E. Stormes, adjunct instructor and a current PBSO Law Enforcement Operations of cer. The coursework examined a range of substantive issues concerning emergency management, intelligence analysis and the security management of terrorist attacks, man-made disasters and natural disasters, and transportation and border security. "We are honored to be chosen to provide the homeland security training to TSA employees working at Palm Beach International Airport," says Dr. Jacqueline Rogers, dean of health sciences and public safety, who will speak at the ceremony. According to Rogers, "our curriculum re ects current homeland security practices and our faculty are content experts." The Homeland Security Specialist college credit certi cate program will continue to be offered by Palm Beach State and is now accepting students for classes starting in August on the Lake Worth campus.

PBC HEALTH CARE DISTRICTThe Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary, an organization of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and talents to the county’s only public hospital, recently presented four Lakeside Medical Center employees with scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. The recipients are Theresa Williams, of ce assistant; Ellie Provenzano, surgery technician; Kimberly Schrier-Hoang, RN, Telemetry; and Lisa Wade, MSN, RN, risk manager. The Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary supports Lakeside Medical Center in many ways, including operating the hospital’s gift shop and hosting fundraisers. “The scholarships will encourage and assist these four employees in furthering their education and continued service to Lakeside Medical Center,” said Frances E. Adams, president of Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary. “We commend them on their record of commitment and service in meeting the healthcare needs of our community.” “I am very happy and excited because the scholarship will help me earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management,” said Theresa Williams, who earned her Associate in Arts degree from Palm Beach State College in Belle Glade earlier this month. “I’m grateful to the Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary for this scholarship and appreciate how they go out of their way to help everyone.” The scholarships were presented at Lakeside Medical Center during National Volunteer Month in April at an event hosted by hospital leadership to recognize the 21,472 hours of service provided by all of the members of the Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary. In 2013 alone, Auxiliary members volunteered 7,385 hours at the hospital. “We greatly appreciate our Lakeside Medical Center Auxiliary members for their time and dedication to this hospital and the community we serve,” said Thomas J. Leach, hospital administrator, as he personally presented the hours-of-service pins to each Auxiliary member at the event. Lakeside Medical Center is a 70-bed, all-private room, acutecare hospital that opened in October 2009 and is accredited by The Joint Commission. The hospital treats over 33,000 patients a year and is located in the heart of the Glades’ communities in western Palm Beach County. Lakeside Medical Center is owned and operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, a comprehensive safety-net health care system created by the voters in 1988.

Even Floridians are ready to break out the sunscreen and ip- ops. However, summer in Florida also means the beginning of hurricane season, so as June begins, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is making sure the state's utilities are prepared and Florida consumers have the safety information to plan for and recover from severe weather impacts. "It's easy to become nonchalant about preparing for Hurricane Season, since we're repeatedly reminded about it every year. But, the state's active storm history warns us that Floridians need to be prepared," said PSC Chairman Art Graham. "Each year, the PSC provides helpful information for families and also ensures that Florida's utilities are hardened for storm season." To help Florida's families prepare for hurricane season, the PSC provides vital information on its website. The PSC's "Hurricane House," in English and Spanish, is an online guide that includes 19 tips to help prepare your family and your home for severe weather. It includes tips from planning an evacuation route, to creating a Disaster Supplies Kit for emergency situations. The PSC also makes sure the state's electric utilities are prepared for storm season. In April, the PSC reviewed annual Hurricane Preparedness plans for the state's ve investor-owned electric utilities and major telecommunications companies. Utility storm plans are designed to minimize electrical outages and help communities, businesses, and families return to normalcy as quickly as possible. The plans include PSC-mandated storm preparedness initiatives; facility inspections; maintenance and repairs; ooding and storm surge mitigation; wooden pole inspections; and coordination with other utilities, government and community groups.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Barn Swallow is the most abundant swallow species in the world. They breed from southern Alaska and Canada to Mexico, and have been con rmed nesting in Florida as far south as Key West. These swallows also migrate through Florida and have been recorded in the state in every month of the year. When perched, these birds appear cone shaped with a slightly attened head, no visible neck, and long, pointed wings. Barn Swallows have a steely blue back, wings and tail with rufous to tawny underparts. Their blue crown and face contrast with the cinnamon-colored forehead and throat. The white spots under the tail can be dif cult to see except when they are in ight. Females are less boldly colored than the males. The oldest recorded Barn Sparrow in North America was eight years and one month old. During courtship and egg-laying times, Barn Swallows produce a "twitter-warble" song with a long series of warbling sounds followed by mechanical-sounding "whirrs." They give a "cheep" or "churee" whistle call when threatened. Barn Swallows prefer open habitat near water. They y with uid wing beats, rarely gliding, and can make quick, tight turns and dives. Their diet consists mainly of small ying insects, which they snag while ying just above the ground or water, but will also forage to the heights of 100 feet or more. When aquatic insects hatch, they may join other swallow species in mixed ocks while searching for food. They will occasionally eat berries and seeds. In Florida, two broods are usually produced each breeding season from May to July. These birds commonly nest in small colonies on manmade structures, including the eaves of buildings, culverts or under bridges above water. The male and female build the nest cup using mud which they collect in their bills and often mix it with grass stems to make pellets. First, they build a small shelf to sit on, then build up the sides of the nest which they line with grass and feathers. The female lays four to ve white eggs spotted with shades of brown. Both parents incubate the eggs, which hatch in about 15 days, with the young edging when they are 18 to 23 days old. InformationPlease phone your reports or photos of breeding birds, including Barn Swallows, to Margaret England. The location of the birds, date of observation, and what activity observed is needed.

J onathan DickinsonLocated just south of Stuart, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine atwoods, mangroves, and river swamps. The Loxahatchee River, Florida’s rst federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park. Ranger-guided tours of the 1930s pioneer homestead of Trapper Nelson are available year-round. Visitors can enjoy paved and o -road biking, equestrian, and hiking trails. Boating, canoeing, and kayaking along the river are also great w ays to see the park. Anglers can sh along the riverbank or from a boat. The nature and history of the park comes to life through exhibits and displays in the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center. Programs for the kids, or for the whole family, are also offered here. The park also o ers two, fullfacility campgrounds and a youth/group primitive campground. Visitors can arrange boat tours of the river and rent canoes, kayaks, and motorboats by calling 561-746-1466.

The breathtakingly beautiful half-mile beach welcomes visitors for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving. Beachcombing, picnicking, or just relaxing on the sand are also popular activities. Dynamite Point was once the training site for WWII Navy Frogmen, but is now a haven for birdwatchers.

Located in northern Palm Beach County, 2.8 miles south of the intersection of U.S. 1 and PGA Boulevard on A1A.Highlands HammockOne of Florida’s oldest parks, opening to the public in 1931, this park was established when local citizens came togethe r to promote the hammock as a candidate for national park status. During the Great Depression, just prior to World War II, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed additional park facilities and the beginnings of a botanical garden. Many visitors enjoy bicycling the scenic 3-mile loop drive or hiking along the park’s nine trails. An elevated boardwalk traverses an old-growth cypress swamp.

If you would like to have your school news printed, please send to sundesk@newszap.com.Rosenwald ElementarySummer Reading Tips  Your child should read a minimum of 30 minutes per day.  Visit your local public library.  Visit a local bookstore.  Have a special time designated to read as a family.  Read all around: signs-menus-recipescomics. Beating the Summer Slide This week, each kindergarten through fth grade student at Rosenwald Elementary will receive four to six books to read during the summer months and add to their home libraries. In addition to the books, students will receive a folder that includes a monthly calendar of events for reading and math, a reading log and book reports for second through fth graders. Students who return a completed book report will be able to travel to Barnes & Noble in the fall and purchase another book at the store. All of this is an effort to “Beat the Summer Slide,” which refers to the reading-level loss students may experience when they are not reading during the summer months. Parents are being asked to take time to review the folder with their children and make sure time is set aside daily for children to read. New Uniform Colors Rosenwald Elementary’s SAC held a special meeting which included some revisions to the uniform dress code. Tops will remain collared polo-style shirts, but the colors are now orange, white, green, blue (all shades) and pink. Pants, shorts, jumpers and skirts will be navy blue, black and khaki. Jeans and any Rosenwald t-shirt can be worn on Fridays only.Results of the 2014 FCAT 2.0 Reading, Mathematics And Science The Florida Department of Education released the results of the 2014 FCAT 2.0 Reading, Mathematics and Science assessments on June 6.

SCHOOL BRIEFS “Where’s the BB gun?” asked one of the deputies. “We don’t have a BB gun!” said a young boy in a black tank top. The boy was adamant, not only about not owning a BB gun -which a witness accused the group of using to allegedly shoot out the window of a woman’s car -but also about not giving up his name to the deputy. The deputy loomed over the young boy, now in handcuffs, and asked for his name again. “I’m gonna nd out who you are whether you like it or not. Me and your momma are gonna have a long talk.” That long talk was expedited as a woman came bursting onto the scene. “Get over here!” she yelled at her son. “You better be quiet, and when they ask you something, you better open your mouth. Tell them your name! Stop acting crazy.” The boy started saying his name, one syllable at a time, with the help of his mother standing in the background. Seeing there was no BB gun, and realizing that the boys would be receiving a suf cient punishment at home, the boys were released to their guardians. “Imma be your shadow from now on, boy. Wherever you go, there I’ll be. You can kiss your freedom good-bye,” said the mother as she walked her son away from the parking lot and towards his impending summer-vacationruining doom. “It’s very rare that we see that here,” said Deputy Rodriguez as he got back into his patrol car, leaving his fellow deputies behind as he drove off to patrol the city. Parents, he said, are not always on the side of the deputies if their children are accused of doing wrong. The man turned right out of the parking lot and headed towards the Palm Glades complex. “We do residence checks out here. Just to let people know we’re here. To show a presence of force,” said the deputy as he readjusted his green Palm Beach County Sheriff’s uniform. He drove around the winding complex, waving to a group of men standing next to a parked vehicle and checking the corners where the light couldn’t reach. As he came around a corner, the voice came though again on the radio. Another call to Burger King. This time, a domestic dispute was ensuing. “These are some of the most dangerous calls because the situation can change very rapidly,” he said. Arriving in the parking lot once more, Deputy Rodriguez approached a boy leaning against a parked car. His girlfriend allegedly had his keys and would not give them back until he gave her a black cell phone. A second deputy arrived to assist and the two coordinated an exchange. One deputy placed the girlfriend in the back of his patrol vehicle and drove to her house with the boyfriend following in his Malibu. Once at the house, deputies stood by as the exchange was completed and both parties were -for the moment -satis ed. “Sometimes, we have to play the parent,” said Deputy Rodriguez, driving away from the girlfriend’s house and back onto Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. He drove slowly down the street, stopping at a corner to talk to a woman standing on the sidewalk. “Hey there, I haven’t seen you in a while. Are you staying out of trouble?” he asked the woman. “Oh, yes,” the woman answered. “I’ve been staying out of trouble.” “That’s good. That’s what I like to hear,” he said as he drove off down a side road towards a man selling fried chicken from the back of a truck. He stopped next to the man’s truck, greeting him like an old friend. The man selling chicken stooped down to look inside the deputy’s window and shook his hand. “This man is a true example of someone who got into trouble and then turned his life around,” said the deputy. The man selling chicken told his story. He grew up on the streets of Belle Glade, he said, and got into his fair share of trouble before his “day nally came.” He was arrested and faced life in prison before pleading guilty for a shorter sentence. He served 13 of his 17-year sentence and when he got out, he got a job and turned towards the straight and narrow. “If you don’t change your state of mind, you won’t change your course,” said the man. The two bid each other farewell, and the deputy drove off towards Mace Park. He turned off all the lights in his car and shined the spotlight around the park. “I’ve been in Belle Glade for two years now,” said Deputy Rodriguez. “I love it out here. I really like working here.” Deputy Rodriguez is one of ve deputies who are on-call in the city of Belle Glade during the night shift. Deputy Rodriguez is the kind of person you would want to become a cop. “I love coming to work. I love what I do. But people have this perception of cops. I was in line at Dunkin’ Donuts on the coast the other day and I could see the two women in the car in front of me looking at me. The woman at the window told me the two women had asked her if I pay for my food or if I get it for free. No, I don’t get food for free. I pay for my food and my drinks like everyone else. Those two women didn’t like me because I’m a cop. They don’t even know me,” he said. Deputy Rodriguez’s anecdote is indicative of the disconnect that exists between police of cer and citizen. Rodriguez said the sheriff’s department is working to change their “bad guy” image, but it is a dif cult process. “Parents tell their kids, if you don’t listen to us we’re going to call the police and they’re going to arrest you. Kids grow up fearing us,” said Rodriguez. He drove out of the park, stopping to pick up a fallen trash can and to close the gate behind him before he left. He pulled back onto Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and continued his route to nish out the last eight hours of his 12-hour shift. The tinny voice came through on the radio, he checked his computer and drove off toward the call.

(NESHAPS Subpart DDDDD). The upgraded OFA (Over re Air System) modi cations will provide more uniform mixing of the fuel and air, which is intended to lower CO emissions. Although CO and NOx emissions generally have an inverse relationship, the upgrades to the OFA systems are not projected to result in a signi cant increase in any PSD pollutant. The maximum steam rate of Boiler Nos. 1 and 2 will not change as a result of this project, nor will the fuel feed rates or maximum heat input rates change. The more complete mixing of combustion air and fuel will provide greater carbon burnout, thereby lowering CO emissions. Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210 and 62-212 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).

The Permitting Authority will issue a Final Permit in accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comment received in accordance with this notice results in a different decision or a signi cant change of terms or conditions.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit.

The program will target elementary aged children in The Glades, but will open up to middleand high-school-aged students if the level of interest is there, said Clark. Clark also said she hopes the program will continue after the three-year funding runs dry. “We’re working very hard to secure funding after three years. We’re hoping it will be a long-term program like in the eastern part,” said Clark. “All studies have shown that music does help in education awareness in math, science and basic learning. Because of the program we provide, we are providing kids with life skills like discipline, respect for one another and involvement in the community.” Clark said for their 10th anniversary, the Young Singers organization conducted a small survey of former participants to see how many had moved on to higher education after graduating high school. According to Clark, 100 percent of the Young Singers alumni who participated in the survey -several hundred in total -advanced to higher education after high school. We just have to believe that we had something to do with that. Because our kids come from all walks of life,” said Clark. At this time, the team at Young Singers are still working out the details of the program, including nding a place to hold practice in The Glades. Clark said, however, the team has already spoken to several organizations that are interested in lending their facilities. The team also welcomes any donations to the program to help get it off the ground and keep it going long into the future. Anyone interested in donating to the Choirs in the Glades can contact Beth Clark or Shawn Berry at 561-6592332.

SINGERSContinued From Page 1 West Tech Construction Academy in the 20142015 scal budget. He also praised Senator Joe Abruzzo for being instrumental in getting Governor Rick Scott to tour the Glades and view rsthand what the area needs. Rep. Rader explained that last year was the rst time that Florida had ever given money to smaller municipalities for road construction. The state awarded the Glades $1 million to be divided among the tri-cities based on population. Belle Glade will be awarded $600,000, Pahokee will receive $250,000 thousand, and the remaining $190,000 will go to South Bay. This breakdown in funding was met with protest among some Pahokee residents. “Why is Belle Glade receiving the largest portion of the money,” said Richard Brown. “It should have been split three ways.” Commissioner Allie Biggs agreed that the funding should have been divided equally, “especially since Belle Glade is a million ahead from last year,” she said. “We tried to nd a way that was fair to everyone,” said Rep. Rader. “Basing it on population was as fair as we could come up with to allocate the funds and create a line item in the budget for future funding.” The state created a new line item in the state budget to which they would allocate $9 million for Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC). This money would be awarded to small cities within the state’s wealthiest counties. Belle Glade, South Bay, Pahokee, Immokalee, and Freeport are ve cities that are eligible to apply for RACEC funding. When given the opportunity to address the representative one resident voiced his disagreement with Rep. Rader on the issue of gun control. He stated that the representative “lambasted the Republicans for their position on guns”. “I’ve got news for you; this isn’t an all Democratic fan club,” said Bobby Colvin. “There are Republicans here; you are to represent us too and we stand for our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms.” Rep. Rader ended his presentation with the clari cation that he was not “antiSecond Amendment” but explained that the topic of gun control should include a person’s mental health and criminal background checks. Mayor’s Report In the mayor’s report, Mayor Colin Walkes directed the city manager, Derrek Moore, to make adjustments to his $400 gas stipend. Beginning in October when the new budget takes effect, he instructed Mr. Moore to reallocate $100 each month for 12 months to the scholarship program that the city will be beginning. Mayor Walkes further instructed that the $1200 was to be divided evenly between Pahokee’s valedictorian and salutatorian with each receiving $600. He also stated that he would like to donate $50 each month, for a total of $600, to the Pahokee Cleanup Program. City Manager’s Report In the city manager’s report, Derrek Moore stated that because he had received numerous calls from various marketing rms about promoting the city he would like to request the commission’s approval to begin the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The commissioners voted unanimously to begin the RFP process in hopes of hiring a marketing rm that would promote various city events and property like the July Fourth reworks, Heritage Festival, and marina. The city is seeking to change its current slogan, “Palm Beach County’s Other Coast”. Mr. Moore made a request to the residents to submit their ideas for the city’s new slogan. Mr. Moore informed the citizens that Senator Joe Abruzzo is scheduled to attend the next commission meeting on June 24.

Father’s Day: A Heavenly One, An Earthly One, A GiftBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church“Our Father…” That’s the beginning of the best-known prayer given when Jesus tells His followers how to pray(Matthew 6:5ff). That’s quite an appellation! From the beginning, God is the one who protects, shepherds, provides, comforts, loves. He is the bulwark of the family; leading, sharing and balancing between the hearth and the world outside. He is “The Father” above all and His Son shares with us that key part of God’s nature in teaching us about Him and His fatherhood. We take a day out to celebrate fathers; the Lord has that one-ness with His Heavenly father and it’s worth our looking to Him as a way to be the best fathers we can possibly be. One of my professional acquaintances has spoken of fatherhood as the preparation of our children for the outside world, balancing between the nurturing of motherhood and the world beyond the home. Children need both parents: they need the security motherhood gives, as well as the fatherly preparation for life. Actually, mothers and fathers provide both; neither being exclusive to one or the other. Today, parenthood is often left to one who has a greater custodial role and both being “mother” and being “father” falls on one or the other. Mothers work outside of the home more than ever before as economic necessities have changed the traditional roles. Fathers are away far more than in the past. I am always moved by the family reunions that take place when Dad comes home from Afghanistan or Iraq -unquestionable signs of his importance in the family constellation and place in the lives of those who welcome him. In spite of its importance, we really don’t do much parent education. With all of the advances made in the social sciences, very little is taught to our children about how to be a good father or mother. In my many years in ministry, I’ve found that many times the only training for parenthood comes from the examples of the homes where children are raised. Unfortunately, when teaching is not always the best, tragic results follow. Data shows that in homes where there is violence, it is likely to be passed to the next generation, with all of the tragic results that come and all of the destruction and emotional upheaval that follows. The “Father in Heaven” gives us another example to follow. Strength is for guidance and protection of the others, not imposing wills or wielding power. Providing is for emotional as well as material support. Comforting is in appreciating the gifts of others in the family and what a life partner can share to make the home run smoothly. The Father in Heaven is the one to whom His children can turn when overwhelmed and fearful. His comfort, assurance and help comes, not always as people would like, but as needed to carry them through and with the promise to the children that He will be with them no matter what happens. The Father in Heaven is the one who sees the uniqueness of each of His children, loves them all, encourages them to be what they’re meant to be. No doubt about it -Fatherhood is no simple task. Despite all of the human limitations, the Lord has given us someone to call on -“Our Father…” The fatherhood of the one in Heaven is for all of us as we share in His creation, as we sustain those entrusted to us, and as we inspire and teach and lead. In the meantime, we have His example and guidance when needed. We have His community to share in looking for good resources should things not go well. We have a place to thank God for the gift of being “fathers” when we’re called and whatever our parenthood happens to be. God has given us that gift by sharing in fatherhood -sharing one of His own special and sacred gifts with us. “Our Father…” the one in Heaven, my father – the one who shared it with me on earth, and our being fathers to know that priceless and holy calling.
