Son of a preacher man. I just have problems with this notion. My wife seems OK and my older children OK. But what about a boy being raised as the son of a Preacher man. That has got to be tough. I speak in metaphors and quote scripture while playing soccer. He seems to like it now and hugs are more important now than lectures.
But he is free to choose. But with a Preacher man dad. I worry for him. I am big and tough and authoritative. But he must be him. I pray.
What say you?
Simple. When you are with him, don't preach.
I'm a designer, I design while I'm working and don't talk about it when I'm with my boys. I also don't bring up religion with them unless they bring it up.
I don't really think it matters, if his Dad is the Last of the Catfished Headed Slime Monsters, so long as he is a good Dad, is there when he is needed and leads by loving example, rather than constant nagging. I think you are a good Dad. You have little to worry about.
How did you know he calls me catfish head?
I must be psychic. Does he really call you that?
Just don't overdo it or force him to listen. I think having a religious upbringing is wonderful. I'm sure he'll be alright and probably better for it.

Is it proper to call a preacher man Father?My congregation has been calling me "Teacher" lately and it is unsettling. I do teach. But I am uncomfortable being called what they called the "Teacher". I think it would be weird to be called Father. Maybe I am just silly.What say you?

I kissed a nice lady on the cheek, I think my ears turned red. I felt all silly like a boy. I told my wife and she said she knew. And that the church ladies think I am funny. She pinched me on my non-existent butt and giggled. Then she yelled from the kitchen. RICK you do not love anyone but...
