The Prodigal's Journey Home

I sat in church yesterday excited about a new series that we were starting in our Sunday School class.  It's called Gospel in Life and is produced by the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC, Tim Keller. In this study, Tim was expounding upon the story of the Prodigal Son.  (You know, the one about the son who boldly claims his inheritance from his father before his father even dies and then goes off and squanders it on wild living and prostitutes.)

Well, sitting there I was completely struck by a new understanding...of the other son!  We all know and love the son who runs off in rebellion and ultimately sees the error of his ways and slinks back home hoping to find forgiveness and reconciliation.  We can identify with that kind of rebellion, or at least with the temptation to rebel like he did.  We can breath a sigh of relief when his father runs out to meet him (while he was still a long way off!) and rejoice with him when he receives a new robe and is placed before a feast with his father's entire household.  We celebrate his forgiveness and restoration!

But what about that other son?

Hey Everyone!

I figured it was about time to separate my 'writing life' from my daily life (as if they don't intertwine inseparably).  So welcome to Crossing Jordan - A Writer's Journal!

Here you will find my thoughts and ideas about the spiritual journey God has sent me on: Restoring the Joy of Salvation- One Post at a Time.

Please feel free to comment and question as you desire.  That's the whole point.

In Him,
