Our ward in Montana handed out the coolest thing to the fathers last year on Father's Day Sunday.
It was a 2-pack of AA batteries with this great message from The Church News and a quote from President Hinckley:
"During a power outage, have you ever reached for a flashlight, flipped the switch, and watched as a dim beam flicked to life briefly, then went out? The result of old and not very powerful batteries. What could have been a powerful aid during an emergency becomes a useless tool, in need of new or recharged batteries.
Such also is our own spirituality if we ignore it and, like our flashlight, put it aside, unused for long periods of time, allowing our bright light to dim somewhat because of neglect. It is certainly easier—even in times of emergency—to draw upon our spiritual reserves if they are properly maintained then hunt for them worrisomely when forced to do so."
--The Church News, June 2007
“We need to build ourselves spiritually. We live in a world of rush and go, of running here and there and in every direction. We are very busy people. We have so much to do. We need to get off by ourselves once in awhile and think of the spiritual things and build ourselves spiritually.”
--President Gordon B. Hinckley
I wanted to share it because I thought it was a really great idea...as much for the ladies you visit teach as well as the special fathers in your ward family.
