John Crisp’s sermon on “Dad” was a Fathers Day sermon and John used his own father as an example. He focused on what makes a good Dad and shared memories of his father. John listed 6 things Dads should do for their children: 1.Love God, 2. Love their mother, 3. Love the children, 4. Be in church, 5. Work hard, 6. Avoid worthless things.

    I can’t tell you how much your sermon meant to me. Knowing your Dad like we did, your tribute meant even more to us. Of course, the old saying is “an apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” We see so many of those special traits in you, John. If we can only see that thread run through our next generations, we will have cause to rejoice. Of course, I remembered the great gift we had in Ken’s Dad, as well as in my Dad. It is difficult to think that we are the ones who must perform the tasks that you listed. By God’s Grace, we will. God bless you and yours, John. You are truly a blessing to all of us!

    Thank you Gladys. When we think about how large a role our dads played in our relationship with the Lord, it is not hard to see, because of absent dads (either physically or emotionally/spiritually), why society is in such a sad condition.
