So thankful for the time that we had getting together this past Saturday. We had 21 men in attendance…one new attendee, and one gentleman even came all the way from Des Moines to hear brother Skip Lowe speak. Skip did a fabulous job sharing his heart with us that day…he wanted to dedicate this message to his son Jacob whom they just dropped off at college this past Sunday. Below are a few notes that I took from his challenge to us. Hope you get a chance to read the notes and or view his challenge to us on-line at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbsCGZ08k0Q.
Hope y’all have a great month…looking forward to being back together with each of you in September. BTW…Christmas is almost here.
Skip talked briefly about his Father, Bernie Lowe Jr., who was a loving and yet strict father.
Skip and Linda have been married for 25 years. They have lived in Grinnell for 20 years.
This past Sunday he and Linda will be dropping their son Jacob off to college at U of I.
In 2016 he felt as though he was drifting further in his relationship with Jacob and so he knew that he needed to be more intentional as a father to him. He and Jacob have since then taken several train rides together. Skip encouraged each of us to find connectivity time with our children…to demonstrate how faith works…to train them up in the way the Lord would have them to go…and to be a godly example to them.
As father’s and leaders we need to put…
Compassion into Action.
