There is a father absence crisis in America.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 19.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, live without a father in the home. Consequently, there is a father factor in nearly all social ills facing America today.
(2017. U.S. Census Bureau. Data represent children living without a biological, step, or adoptive father.)
I am not usually one for themed sermons, that is those targeted at holidays. When I was preaching I rarely deviated from systematic expository preaching through a book of the bible. However as the above statistic and current events show we are in a Fatherless crisis in America and likely around the world. So today’s sermon on Father’s Day here in the U.S. is on Fatherhood.
