Peter escaping from Prison. Are we starting the story leading up to his arrest, jail time, and release by the angel? I have no objection to the story, but see it simply becoming just a retelling of that event without much wiggle room for artistic interpretation. If I've misunderstood something, please re inform me. I guess what I mean is that in a prodigal story there is more room for creative license. Particularly his adventures on the road, so to speak. The scriptures saw he wasted his dads money on riotous living. Now I'm not advocating we draw anything too illicit, but I'm sure you see where this can go artistically. My suggestion is that every week two weeks month, we give out to the artists writers here a blank slate. For instance. This week we focus on the events that led up to the prodigal wanting to leave...this week we focus on the dialogue with him and his dad, this week we focus on his adventures on the road...this week we focus on him losing everything...this week we focus on him digging to survive...this week we focus on him coming to his senses and the return home... Etc.
We might be on slightly divergent paths. But not because of lack of want.
Hi Elgin - my comment was supposed to be written in bemusement and with humor. The problem with these online things is tone is difficult to present.
I have no issues with the prodigal son as a tale - just does it fit the framework I had previously sent you - and we're you ok with that? We might be able to wedge the prodigal son into it.
Ok. Let me stew.
