Sunday Reflection: Our Father Who Art On Earth On Father’s Day, we celebrate the amazing fathers who raised and cared for us. In Akan culture, we say egya ye sunsum ‘na ena ye bosom, meaning father is the spirit and mother is the god. Our fathers’ spirits have the power to cover us spiritually and we are eternally grateful to them for covering us. Through the years, I have witnessed the influence of fathers slowly climb up the ladder of significance in our heavily matrilineal society. Generally speaking, it was the case that the father would leave his family in search of food or money, and return after a long period work, tired and forgotten. As the known disciplinarian, father would receive from mother the pile of punishable misdemeanors committed by the children and then dish out lashes. The cycle of his absence and unreasonable use of force whenever he was around gave the father the unspoken title of the terrible terror. My father Akwasi Nsiah-Bota loved all six of his children but also got caught up in this terrible terror web. As an accountant and an auditor, he was usually gone during week days. Our father provided all our needs based on his strengths. In fact, he became the PTA chair or a member of every school we would go to. He allowed us to rap, dance, draw, write, sing and make noise when he wasn’t busy “thinking”. Unfortunately for us, he was busy “thinking” all the time. When he was dying after a fatal accident 20 years ago, his words were, “Children, my children, my children…” He was the best father I will ever have. Now that I am a father of growing children, I set out to be a better version of my father. My father loved us the best way he knew and I have an opportunity to love my children by drawing on my father’s wisdom, principles and good examples. However, the more I move away from the traditional idea of being a tough and strict father like my father, the more my children argue and even disagree with me. I could get many points across much faster if I adopted my father’s terrible terror tactics but I’m trying to do better. But can I be better than my father at fatherhood? I suppose that’s still an open question for me. My quest
