Fatherhood - "To Serve and Protect"

James B. Stenson, Author and Education Consultant

The video below is the short version. Watch full-length version.


James B. Stenson

A good deal of 20th-century thought was devoted to reexamining and upending the traditional model of the family. While the role of the mother sparked much debate, what has often been lacking in this dialogue about family life is a compelling and modern evaluation of the role of the father. The strength and patience of the father are manifested not only in his professional work, but also in his service to and protection of his wife and children. Both his public and his private roles are essential to the fabric of the family. Please join the Leadership Forum to hear author and consultant James B. Stenson speak on the topic of "The Father as Protector”.

About the Leadership Forum

The Leadership Forum was established twelve years ago by a group of downtown Boston professionals as a way to encourage men to live unity of life, integrating their faith into their professional, family and social lives.

The Leadership Forum takes its inspiration from documents of the Second Vatican Council, the writings of Pope John Paul II and St. Josemaria Escriva, the Founder of Opus Dei. The Leadership Forum is in its twelth season.
