Celebration of Grace

"Too often the church is the gruel sippers who have their faces pressed against the window of the world watching the world celebrate life and they don't get it.

When in reality, the father welcomed the prodigal son home in the gospel of Luke, chapter 15,

and the world pressed its face against that window to see the celebration of grace."

~ Jean Larroux, Pastor (taken from Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace by Cathleen Falsani

"Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found." And they began to celebrate. Luke 15:22-24
