Favorite Bible Story: I have two! First, there is The Feeding of the Five Thousand in John’s gospel. A little boy shares his five loaves and two fish and the multitudes are fed. I love that Jesus uses a child to work his transforming miracle in the world. Second, is the parable of the Prodigal Son. The story paints a picture of who God is—forgiving, loving unconditionally, and the giver of grace no matter how we mess up.
