Our sermon series for Lent 2019 is:
Mar. 10th – ONE IN A MILLION (Luke 15: 1-7)
In response to challenges from religious authorities, Jesus reminds them that the job of the shepherd is to after lost sheep.
Mar. 17th – PRECIOUS TREASURES (Luke 15: 1-3, 8-10)
Again responding to the authorities, Jesus reminds us that we are like a precious treasure to God, and she will hunt for us until we are found.
Mar. 24th – CARRY ON, MY WAYWARD SON (Luke 15: 11-20)
In the 3rd “Lost” parable, Jesus teaches that whether or not we feel worthy, forgiveness is offered – like a father overjoyed that his child returns.
Mar. 31st – SIBLING RIVALRY (Luke 15: 20 – 32)
A self-righteous brother needs his own kind of forgiveness — because he believes he “deserves” better, and has “earned” it.
Apr. 7th = A FATHER’S BLESSING (Luke 15 11-32)
Can we imagine God’s mercy as a father who sees his child return from the dead?
Apr. 14th – A HOMECOMING PARADE (Palm Sunday)
Jesus enters Jerusalem like a prodigal returning home, and the crowds believe he is there to claim the power of his birthright.
Apr. 21st – GOING HOME (Easter Sunday)
In our own resurrection story, we are all prodigals from a foreign land, returning home to a God who greets us and celebrates.
