  • The drama of Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter is a love story. It is the story of God’s love. I think the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) is the love story Jesus told during his life to help prepare the disciples to understand how his death could be used by God to redeem the world.  The prodigal son is you and me. He tells his loving father (God) that he can’t wait for him to die.

  • As we come closer to Easter I want to celebrate God’s gift of grace. When we know and love Jesus Christ personally as our Lord and Savior then we can understand grace, which is God’s love and forgiveness of our sins which is not contingent on anything we do. We don’t earn grace and we don’t deserve it. It is a free gift given to us because God loves us so much.  In the Parable of the Day Laborers (Matthew 20:1-16) Jesus tells us all about the God’s out-of-control grace showered down upon us.
