Happy Father’s Day from the Lutheran Ladies!
Not being fathers themselves, Sarah, Erin, Bri, and Rachel take the unusual step of inviting two veteran fathers and friends of the show — Michael Grannis and Tony Alter (better known to listeners as “Erin’s Dad”) — into the Lounge for a special Father’s Day interview.
Reflecting on what fatherhood means to them, what Lutheran women can do to support fathers, and how churches and church leaders can play a vital role in the lives of young men without fathers, this lively and far-ranging conversation will provide rich and timely food for thought.
The episode ends with a groan-inducing round of “Dad jokes,” led by Bri.
The Rev. Michael Grannis is senior administrative pastor of Calvary Lutheran Church in Lincoln Park, Mich., and the proud father of eight children. The Rev. Tony Alter is a retired LCMS pastor, who remains grateful to his childhood congregation of Immanuel Lutheran in Memphis, TN, (then under the leadership of Pastor Gordon Gross) for helping him find and live into his vocation as both a father and a pastor.
