Join Gini and Tim as they dig into one of the most well-known parables in the Bible, the story known the world over as “The Prodigal Son.” But that is so unfair! So Fake News! Never has a story been more mis-named! (Ok, that could be hyperbole. I haven’t done my research. There actually could be a more in-aptly name story in the Bible, but you see where I’m going...) This is the story of TWO brothers! And the fact that the younger brother gets the story named after him – as if it’s all about him and him alone – is another cruel twist of irony! Gini and Tim – both third children in their respective families – pick apart the older brother even as they identify with him! And the younger brother – the one who gets all the attention – gets picked apart as well! It’s sibling mayhem this week… You won’t want to miss it!
