On being a (perfect) father

Boswell, the famous biographer of Samuel Johnson,
often referred to a special day in his childhood when
his father took him fishing. He had great joy at the
memory of that time spent with his dad and the
things they talked about and he learned. Completely
underestimating the value of that time, all his father
had written in his journal for that day was the one
sentence, ‘Gone fishing today with my son; a day
wasted’. Oh dear, how much we fathers have still to

Ouch! From Roger Carswell’s gospel booklet “On being a perfect Father”
