A Father’s Love for Two Lost Sons Luke 15:1-3, 11-32

Welcome to this Sunday gathering at Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting Church on Sunday 27 March 2022. Today is the fourth Sunday of Lent. Our reading is the last of three parables known as ‘The Prodigal Son.’ There is one younger and one older brother, both of whom are lost in God’s eyes. We get to see how deep is the love of God, as He looks for the return of the younger son from his reckless endeavours and initiates a celebration on his return to the family. The older son is angry and remains lost to God, while he continues to refuse to join in the celebrations following his brother’s return. Similarly, God misses us deeply, when we are out of fellowship with Him and longs for us to reconnect with Him.
