Since I graduated from college three years ago, I’ve been a bridesmaid four times, kept two wedding guest books, and read Scripture in seven different ceremonies, and that’s just the list of weddings I’ve participated in.
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.

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."
