“The Prodigal Father” - Sermon Text: Luke 9:28-36 - Rev. Thomas Eggold
The story in Luke 15 is often called the “Parable of the Prodigal Son.” But the word prodigal is actually a much better description of the father. You see, “prodigal” means “reckless” or “extravagant” and it is in the father’s unrestrained and overwhelming grace that we find the truth that changes our lives.
