Knots of Our Relationships

Edwyn and Karen de Souza tell us about an experience that changed their relationship with their eldest son, David.

In this video, Edwyn recounts an incident where he did one of the worst things one can ever do as a father – while in the midst of an argument, Edwyn asked his eldest son, David, to leave the house. And so, he did.

That night was one of the toughest ones Edwyn has ever spent. However, this incident also turned out to be the catalyst for greater understanding and a deeper relationship between the father and son duo.

It was a desire to understand the other better, and an act of love that broke down the walls between Edwyn and David.

How can we take a step towards breaking down the walls in our relationship with our own earthly fathers?

“I long for that connection from my two sons. That is what keeps parenthood really exciting, to know that I don’t have it together but yet the Lord will help to settle all the knots that I am tying and connect again with my two boys.”

– Edwyn de Souza
