Jan. 13: “The Leaving & Returning.” Our lives are filled with times of going away and returning home. The story of the Prodigal Son helps explore what it looks like as we seek to restore damaged relationships.
Jan. 20: “Lost in Resentment.” Grace and mercy are lived out in front of the elder son. In the midst of what should have been a time for great
celebration, the elder son found himself lost in resentment. How often do we find ourselves in a similar place as God works within our community?
Jan. 27: “Shattering Shame.” Shame is one of the most powerful emotions we feel. It has the ability to paralyze us. The Father’s response to the shame of his son unleashes grace and sets them both free to experience life to the full.
Feb. 3: “Called to be the Father.” No matter which son we identify with most, we are called to become the Father. We are called to extend grace and forgiveness to all.
