    “And he will turn the hearts of fathers” with Willie Patterson

    “And he will turn the hearts of fathers” with Willie Patterson

    We had one episode on failing as a father. But what about deep failure?

    The last verses of the Old Testament, Malachi 4:5-6 says, “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”

    Join us as we take a deep dive into this verse, and speak to a man with extensive experience in helping families who have experienced profound hurt turn towards each other, find healing and, where possible, restoration.

    Today we are privileged to have Willie Patterson on the Legacy Podcast. Willie was the Assistant Director for 'Family and Child Care', and then took early retirement to set up Family Spectrum in 2004.
