A Father we can all count on

The fatherhood of God has meant so much to me throughout my life—on Father’s Day and every day. 

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and our home life was far from happy. My father left our family when I was very young, and we were virtually destitute.

Not long after he disappeared, my mother started attending a Church of Christ, Scientist, in Buenos Aires, and my sister and I were enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School. One of my earliest recollections was discovering that God is the Father and Mother of each one of us—that we are the beloved children of this all-loving Parent. A verse from the Bible subsequently became one of my favorite texts: “Have we not all one father?” (Malachi 2:10).
