2 - Two Lost Sons and A Father's Costly Love

Series: Kingdom Stories



April 17, 2023 | The Rev. Canon Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    In this well-known and beloved parable, Jesus describes two types of people: those who flee from God in a misguided quest for personal freedom and those whose attempts to obey God result in self-righteous resentment. Between them stands a father who loves them both with reckless abandon and who joyfully welcomes them home.
