What & Why:
One of Jesus’ most famous stories is about two sons and their father. The younger son asks his father for his inheritance long before he is meant to have it (his father was still alive!) and after receiving it, goes and spends it on wild living. He runs out of money, gets a job feeding pigs, and ends up starving. Coming to his senses, he decides to return to his father’s house, and when he does, his father throws him an extravagant celebration. The older son hears the music and is furious because though he’s always been a faithful servant to his father, he’s never been thrown a party.
We are earthly
sons of our parents and heavenly
sons of God by faith
– but what kind of sons are we?
Like the younger son we’ve all had moments where we’ve lost our way and ended up in the company of swine.
Like the elder son, we’ve all felt that despite how hard we have tried we haven’t gotten what was owed us.
Come and enjoy a weekend of reflection and fun (with great food!) as we dive into more of what it means to live as real sons of our father in heaven.
