A SONG INSPIRED BY A PARABLE

In Luke chapter 15, we read one of the most well-known parables of our Lord Jesus Christ and that is the Parable of the Prodigal Son. It’s not only because it’s a beautiful story, but it’s an allegory that all of us can relate to. Its message is so universal and timeless that it can speak to any generation. It’s totally inspiring and it inspired to write a song based on it.
There was a time that I saw a stage presentation of some youth using the story and the music of this song. It is a very effective way of presenting it – a moving story, a live drama, and a suitable music for it. I knew many were blessed on that evangelistic event.
That presentation made me dreamed of doing a music video of that song. But at that time, videoke were really popular so I decided to do a videoke production not only of that song but my other songs as well. But I want something where the video shows the story or the message of the song. It was not easy doing it but I did it and I realized how hard it was to be a movie or video director. But I was happy when all the songs were finished and I think I was able to bring out the message I want in the video in the best way that I could with little resources I have – a digital videocam and a computer. But after two videoke albums, the videocam broke down and I stopped doing video production. How I wish I could go do some more video productions again.
Here’s that song inspired by a parable, featuring Pastor Redge Almadin and Erwin Duran as the father and son, “Sa Aking Pagbabalik” (Returning Home.)
