Turning Trash into Treasure

This was a worship service.
Luke 15:1-3, 11b-24. Today we have two stories. One is a contemporary tale set in the slums of Lagos, Nigeria, and is about a woman who turns trash into treasure. The other is an ancient story about a young man who turned treasure (his inheritance) into trash, ruining his life. Fortunately, he had a father who saw "treasure" in his son. Similarly, Gods love transforms trashed lives into treasured ones & we are called to pay it forward.
