Sunday to Monday / Lost & Found

“Repentance is whatever it takes to get you to turn toward home.”
Bishop Wayne Weissenbuehler

It was our joy to welcome Rodney Jackson, former gang leader and his friend, Alvis O'Neil in worship yesterday. We heard stories of being lost and relentlessly pursued and found by God - from situations when no one thought redemption was possible.  Thanks Jesus and thanks Rodney. 

Consider Luke 15, how you might be lost and how God wants to find you. 

  • When you read Luke 15:11-32. Who do you most identify with in the story, the younger Son, Eldest Son, or the Father? Why?
  • If “Repentance is whatever it takes to get you to turn toward home”, when have you experienced repentance and how would you describe the experience?
  • Are you willing to celebrate when the lost is found? “Kill the fatted calf” (Luke 15:27). Or do you think the lost should first pay a price for having gone astray?
  • Reflect upon this quote; how might it transform our spirituality? “Do not leave them where they are. Do not bring them to where you are, as beautiful as that might be. Instead go with them to a new place where neither of you has been before.” Father Vincent
  • Looking ahead to next week: What if somebody asked you, “to give everything you had away to the poor”? How would you respond? (Luke 18:18-30)
