Jesus once told a story about a runaway son who had abandoned his family and ruined his life. He finally hit rock bottom and decided to come crawling home, expecting to be punished for his rebellion. But while he was still a long way from home, his father saw him, ran to him and embraced him. Then the father threw a huge party to celebrate his return to the family.
This is exactly what God is like.
This community exists to celebrate and demonstrate the love of that father.
