The summer after my freshman year of college messed up my life. I had it all planned out. My first year of college had been amazing. I’d made a ton of new friends whom I loved spending time with and I had started dating a girl early in the year.
To the parents of my students, Hi. My name is Brittany. We’ve never met before, but I spend a lot of time with your college student. Actually, I probably spend more time with them than you do during the school year.
Back when I was applying to college I was a naïve pastor’s kid who decided to forgo Christian colleges for a place where it would be something of a “challenge” to be a Christian. Instead, I’d head to the secularized and faithless University of Illinois.
A couple years ago, David Hui and Matt Kirk, two of our videographers in 2100 Productions, completed a side project on fatherhood. Through it, David explores his relationship with his absent father, his role as a dad to two kids, and his knowledge of who God is. The result is a lovely reflection on what it means to call God "Father."
