Today we look at probably the most well known story in the bible

You might know it as “The Prodigal Son”

But a more apt name might be “The Parable of the Undignified Father.”

Reflect

What do you make of the lack of consistency in these two parables?
Can you recall a time when inconsistency loomed large in your life, your faith?
How did you respond?
How do you deal with inconsistencies in others?

Pray

For those who struggle with big questions, who look for a broader canvas on which
to paint a picture of life
For staff and managers in Uniting Aged Care services, as they look after vulnerable
Australians at a time when the sustainability of their sector is under intense national
scrutiny
For all who are cut off from family and friends during this Covid crisis

OUR PRAYER

PRAYERS FOR THE WORLD

Act

The next time you are confronted by perceived inconsistency in your thoughts, words
or actions, don’t cover it up.
Pause, let it be for a while, and listen for a whisper of freedom.
Write about it in a journal.
