The Prodigal Son: Compassion and Abundance
Readings: Psalm 23; Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
This week I am preaching on Luke 15:1-3; 11b-32, the Parable of the Prodigal Son. This parable exemplifies so much of what we’ve already discussed about economic equity this season, and it adds a layer of complexity in terms of the vulnerability required to live into true economic interdependence. How can we practice giving ourselves to the tender and vulnerable task of creating alternate economies that are expansive, compassionate, and abundant?
