The story of the Lost Son, in Luke 15 in the New Testament, is a famous tale about God’s mercy and grace.
There is an old joke that says:
“When the Lost Son came home, who was the most unhappy?”
“Was it his older brother?”
“No…it was the fattened calf!”
My images today, on the theme of MERCY, continue the spirit of this old joke as we approach the time of this most carnivorous celebration.
