The disorder and decay in virtually every arena of society is an indication to the fact that the human family has moved further and further away from God and His plan of blessing for mankind. The absence of a father effect has tentacles that touch many of the issues our communities face today. These effects touch education, affordable housing, poverty,widespread criminal activity, drug, alcohol, and sexual abuse along with economic chaos and an increasing plethora of personal psychological and physiological health issues leaving us exasperated and asking the question: “ How did we get here and what can we do to change our communities around?”
We don’t have to look far to see the effects of fatherlessness.
