What does it mean if a person is generous? What can a person be generous with?

When they hear the word ‘generous’ most people would think about being generous with their money or things. In this retelling of one of Jesus’ most famous parables, we see that we can be generous with our forgiveness too.

Based on Luke 15:11-32.

This film was created as part of the Lenten 40 Acts Together series. Click here to view free lessons and collective worship material exploring generosity throughout Lent.
