I Commit Myself to Being a Strategic Dad

28 Mar

Tonight was the Dad’s Commitment Ceremony of our Raising a Modern-Day Knight course at First Central Baptist Church in Chicopee, MA. We started out with a dinner of burgers and hot dogs. During our commitment ceremony, each dad committed himself to his son, his fellow dads, and to God to be a “Strategic Dad.” As each man grasped the sword, he pledged himself with these words,

“I, ____________, before God, commit myself to raise you _________, to be a modern-day knight. I promise to love you, impart God’s wisdom to you, spend time with you, have fun with you, and be the strategic dad you need me to be. I promise to lead you, into the masculinity of the second Adam, Jesus Christ. So help me, God. Amen.”

Afterwards, we celebrated with Robin Warner’s castle cake.

It was a very significant milestone in the life each family.
