In this episode of The Father’s Journey I discuss the idea of death and rebirth on The Father’s Journey, the struggles I face with my daughter going into her third year, and how the story of Young Goodman Brown resembles the journey of all fathers. To grow as fathers we need to kill off the old parts of ourselves, those parts that hinder us most. Each time we do so we are reborn anew. Having a three year old who’s coming into her own is like having a little rebel. We all journey into the dark forest of the night. Goodman Brown and fathers are more similar than different.
