Manage episode 367173055 series 2885787
Research is clear - Dads matter! And whether young or old, male or female, we all consider his presence one of the most important factors/elements in our lives both for good or bad. However, despite the overwhelming amount of research that supports the positive impact a father’s presence can have on his children’s lives, we find ourselves in what many have identified as a “pandemic of fatherlessness” in our country today. If the stats hold true, nearly 40% of kids will at some point wake up in a home where their biological father does not live. And that to me my friends is not only devastating, but actually become detrimental to the trajectory of a child’s life. In knowing this, we wanted to have a real and honest conversation around the topic of fatherlessness, but also what it looks like to push beyond the pain by stepping into the path and process of forgiveness. Thankfully, today we have a very special guest who easily has one of the most powerful testimonies I’ve ever heard involving pain and brokenness but also forgiveness and restoration within a father-son relationship. Joining us today is spoken-word and gospel hip-hop artist, podcaster, and preacher, Legin! Inspired by his father’s battle with addiction, Legin speaks about turning fatherlessness into forgiveness, racial reconciliation and urban apologetics, as well as the hope of the gospel in and throughout his music. Our prayer is that through today’s you would be reminded of the power and peace found in forgiveness as well as the reminder that although you may be damaged, you are not defeated. And how do I know that? Because what’s damaged you will never define you.
