At-Home Worship for April 3, 2022

Here is the audio for at-home worship for Sunday, April 3, 2022. The scripture text for this message is Luke 15:11-32, the story of the prodigal son, also called the story of the Father’s love. This is an appropriate passage for the season of Lent because it shows both sons reflecting on their situations. However, only one son in the story repents and returns to the father. An interesting parable, especially when you realize that Jesus is telling this story for the benefit of both the Pharisees and the “sinners” and outcasts who are listening to him. I hope your Sunday is glorious!
