During the season of Lent and Easter, The Acts8 BLOGFORCE and Collect Call will beÂ cooperating with The Good Book ClubÂ andÂ Episcopal organizations across the spectrum to promote the reading of Luke and Acts.Â Every week, we present a new question based on the upcoming readings for people to blog on.Â The question for this week, that of March 11th, is:
Prodigal (n) – a person who spends money in a recklessly extravagant way – is often used to describe the younger son in the well known parable, but what if the point of this parable is the prodigality of the father?Â Tell of a time you were aware of God’ recklessly extravagant grace.
Anyone can participate in the BLOGFORCE using the instructions below:
