It points to a desire of seeing “prodigal thoughts” pointed towards truth. In some areas of perspective and practice, I suppose we have swerved a little off track at times. By no means do I have it all figured out, nor am I called to be the savior of faithful theology. If I held to that, it would be a prodigal thought.
Jesus did say that knowing truth will set us free (John 8:32). And I can only hope that as we discuss theological perspectives and practices together, it will help bring prodigal thoughts home, setting us free to be all that God has designed us to be.
