I was a youth pastor for nearly ten years. I loved sharing the raw truth of the Gospel with teenagers and inviting them to embrace the messiness of grace.
Today is a #ThrowbackThursday clip of an short talk I gave on The Prodigal Son. It’s my favorite story in the whole Book. It’s a clear and beautiful promise that God will restore the wasted years, and come running to us with messy grace.
Check it out. And if you like it, share it!
And if you’re in need of some messy grace for your own life, I’d love to chat with you. Next Thursday, July 21st, the first-ever Grace is Messy Spiritual and Religious Recovery Group begins. It’s online and going to be life-changing. Interested in being a part? There are two spots left! Click here for details.
