Timothy was like a son to the Apostle Paul, and Paul took his fathering role very seriously. (Philippians 2:1-24) In his letters to the early Christian churches, Paul refers to the young man as “beloved and faithful child in the Lord,” his “co-worker” and “helper.” For Paul, Timothy is a fellow servant in the Lord. He urges him to be faithful in prayer and thanksgivings, avoid “profane chatter” and false knowledge. We all need such “fathers in the faith.” Who have been those people for you? Three men from our congregation share stories of their “fathers in the faith.”
