Vision Talk Part 1 - Extravagant Welcome
In the first of a four part series looking at our Vision Statement, Nathan, looks at the story of the Prodigal Son. In he story there is an incredible picture of God the father. Standing at the very edge of his property, day after day, looking for a glimpse of his son returning. And the verse whole story pivots on this verse:
"But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms round him and kissed him."
The talk focuses on the question of what a community would look like that took the welcome of God and the gift of grace seriously.
