We were out at the Father’s Day resources cafe in Edgehill again this summer. Celebrating our fathers and mothers is important for us at The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee, especially because of precept 5: Honor and Help Your Parents.
In this chapter of The Way to Happiness, it states:
“Children are indebted to their parents for their upbringing–if the parents did so. While some parents are so fiercely independent that they will accept no return on the obligation, it is nevertheless true that there often comes a time when it is the turn of the younger generation to care for their parents.
“In spite of all, one must remember that they are the only parents one has. And as such, no matter what, one should honor them and help them.”
The Father’s Day bash was great – we were able to distribute several dozen booklets and speak about The Way to Happiness to everyone attending.
