  • Episode 73: Walk on the Wild Side: Amazing Grace Too Sweet the Sound?

    12 July 2020  |  Season 12  |  17 mins 50 secs
    roswell presbyterian church

    This week we consider one of the most familiar of all Jesus’ parables, best known as “The Parable of the Prodigal Son.” It’s a story of how the lives of two sons unfold and of a father who encompasses both with love, generosity, and grace. Yet, it’s a love and grace that can be hard to understand by the usual criteria of justice and fairness - that is unless there’s more to the story. Join me as we explore it together.

    Our passage today tells us how a good and wise man was viewed by others and how some of those others, out of jealousy, tried to have him put to death.

And, in a fearful situation one long night, his faith in God gave him courage and he leaned on that faith as the lions surrounded him.

    In this podcast we look at the story of Noah’s Ark and the flood. While few of us will experience a literal flood as Noah did, we will all experience flood-like events.
