Sins of the Fathers

It’s been a deep wound in Brian’s life. His grandfather disowning him. Turning his back on him when he was a boy. And Brian never knew why. So five years ago Brian started a journey to find out why. It’s been a brutal and beautiful journey. And now he invites you into his story with his new podcast, The Grandfather Effect, that starts this Thursday.

With each unfolding episode you’ll journey with Brian into the pain, into the darkness, into perhaps an unexpected awakening to the extravagant love of the wounded Jesus and the perfect love of Abba Father.  Brian Dahlen is cohost of Brian and Jannelle Mornings on Moody Radio Cleveland and he joins our team today to open up about the scars and the beauty of his journey.

First, Brian’s discovering that every family is broken and needs the gospel. That he’s capable of doing just what his grandfather did. He’s learning how to forgive a dead man. That his grandfather’s sin left him feeling like he had to earn love and attention. He’s learning to forgive those who aren’t asking for it because he’s been so unconditionally loved and forgiven by the Beautiful One. But why did his grandfather disown him? Well that’s for the last episode.
