Blogging through The Orthodox Heretic day 26

Pete continues the theme of transformative love with another retelling of the Prodigal Son. This one is very much like the original with one more detail... while the son returns home, he doesn't truly repent until after his father welcomes him home. After the party, the son weeps for what he had done.

In his commentary, Pete talks about forgiveness coming before repentance rather than the typical formula of repentance then forgiveness. I like it... as we read in A Heretics Guide to Eternity, free floaties for all.
