“Father & Fathering” is the subject of this teaching. Including the Revelatory Definitions for Father & Fathering. Father: for most of us simply means that male parent; whether one as a result of DNA or taking on the mantle through relationship; it is all about acting paternally and performing the tasks or duties usually expected of a male parent. Fathering: utilizes characteristics enabling one to stand, even withstand whoever or whatever proves necessary; including denying self; to help another on their journey to seeing, learning and taking advantage of all the roads that lead towards living their best life. The revelatory is this concept exists when men will step up to accept and take on as their own, an overseeing responsibility for and towards all those committed to their care; as they would their biological children.
