prodigal-son-rembrandtWhat can we say about the Parable of the Prodigal Son which has not been said before? This parable which Jesus tells is perhaps one of the most well known of all the parables. Sometimes it is nice to return to a familiar story and take comfort in it. The response of the father to the younger son is one which has demonstrated love and forgiveness for generations. A reminder that second chances are always available.

As you prepare for worship this Sunday I wonder which character you identify most with in the story?

Text: Luke 15: 1-2, 11-32
