For today's collective worship linked to 'forgiveness' we are going to look at a story from the bible.
Because we part of God's family, we are forgiven and welcome no matter what. In this story, a man's son asks for his inheritance then leaves home and squanders it all away. Because of his poor choices, he's left in great need. When he realises his mistake, he humbles himself and goes back to his father. He plans to beg that his father will take him back as a servant. Instead, his father welcomes his son home.
