Lent 4 – The Lost Son (2016.03.06 Sermon)
March 6th, 2016 | John Chandler
John Chandler offers a Lenten sermon on Luke 15:11-32 — perhaps the most famous of Jesus’ teachings.
- “The sheep and coin are of value, and that is the reason they are searched for so diligently. Sinners, on the other hand, would be valued only after they had repented. For these parables to respond to the objections of Jesus’ challengers, the scribes and Pharisees would have needed to have begun to look at the sinners and tax collectors in a different way.” — Sharon Ringe
- “The gospel of Jesus reinvites us into this kind of bounded creativity, an invitation that demands great creativity and boldness and also great obedience and faithfulness. The Christian life is to be both right-brained and left-brained. On one side, in creative freedom, we are called to push ourselves to make and create and work the way God created us to. On the other, we do so while faithfully living within the limitations of our lives.” — AJ Swoboda
