Father's Day is celebrated throughout the world on different days, with different histories and traditions. But the American holiday, the third Sunday of June, has its origins in the church. In 1908, Grace Golden Clayton organized the first Father's Day celebration in a Methodist church in Fairmont, West Virginia, to memorialize men killed in a local mining disaster. Today it serves as a time to reflect on the role dads play in their children's lives and, in many churches, the Fatherhood of God.
