We had nine guys turn out for our first “Letters from Dad” workshop on Saturday. It was an interesting mix of dads — young dads and older dads. The youngest kids represented were three week-old twins; the oldest, children in their mid-twenties.
The common theme as to why each had attended was this: we wanted to leave a written legacy to our kids.
I spent about fifteen minutes going over some background material and sharing a few passages about a father’s responsibility to pass down the faith to their children. And then we were off and writing.
At the end, I asked how many would like to do it again and the response was … how soon?
