Thomas Bergen (Menno Simons Centre Residence Coordinator) continued his series on the parable of the prodigal sons (Oct. 16th) by turning our attention to the father and his extravagant forgiveness and generosity. By holding onto hope despite the pain of rejection, the father’s joy at the return of his lost son prompted a lavish celebration. While patriarchal culture expected rebellious children to be harshly disciplined, this caring parent shamelessly reached out to restore the younger son’s honour and reminded the older son of his impartial love. Will we emulate the grace and mercy that Christ modeled for us? [KH]
