Story: Luke 15:1-32 (p. 954-5, Pew Bible)
Sermon: “Valuing the Lost”
Reflection: This week’s reading is very long and contains much material. The theme within all of these parables though is the same: finding that which was lost by devoting our energy to the search. We lose stuff all the time, from the misplaced car keys to the shopping list left on the kitchen table. Sometimes the things we lose are less tangible: tempers; hope; focus… this week as you reflect on what God is prompting you to do, think about the things you have lost, or lose that you would like to find or regain. What are you searching for?
