Oh my papa

So my dad is having a rough time with his brother who is verbally abusing him. Dad used to go every Saturday to have coffee with his brothers, but this particular brother is causing dad to skip it. Now it's important to understand here that family time with these brothers is seen to be treasured, and it's breaking my dad's heart that his own dear brother is treating him like this. Religion is woven into this, and for me this is one of the reasons i think that i've devoted a portion of my reading with the holy scribblers.

Even for those in the ministry they have to keep at it daily, the ways of the believing kind are at odds with reality always, and this is how i see why there must be continual application and all those various forms of attention to it's teaching.

My poor papa he isn't prepared for these things, it would help if he knew how to use the internet, but he can't even get the email to work for him. So i write little epistles to him, while he has his hot chocolate sans brothers, and gets 2 burgers, and he'll get to read his son writing like a spiritual advisor, and be so gosh darned edified and suddenly hopeful again. But i really do hope to help him think more healthy, but i won't ever be using anything secular on him, secular is for me, to take away my folks' beliefs isn't in the cards for me.

But i do read the holy scribblers for other reasons, which are less defined, the controversies involved are interesting i must say, and they engage my thought pleasantly. It's an ongoing thing how under certain circumstances and judging by which source your using it can seem pretty nice and others mere empty clashing of cymbals.
Sorry about this situation with your father.
