Jesus’ simple story of the two sons takes the Gospel out of the realm of the “theoretical” and places the mercy of God into the midst of our busy, complicated everyday lives.  Compassion, forgiveness and mercy are only words until our actions give full expression to those values in our relationships with others; our identifying ourselves as Christians and calling ourselves disciples of Jesus mean nothing until our lives express that identify in the values we uphold and the beliefs we live.  Discipleship requires us to embrace the Gospel not as an unattainable ideal yet as an attitude and perspective for approaching our world as we struggle to live our imperfect lives, a compass that guides us on our journey to life’s fulfillment in God.

In Christ’s Peace, Fr. Dave
