Happy Farter’s Day

I really enjoyed my first father’s day yesterday, but I’m mindful of the exclusivity that days like it engender, and the pain and anxiety it causes men who would like nothing more than to be dads, and children who would like nothing more than to have a dad.

So I propose a new, more inclusive, day for the first day after Father’s Day.

Farters Day

To be celebrated in whatever manner you deem most appropriate.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
