Have you ever done something that you regretted; and perhaps hurt someone in the process? You had to face them and you wonder how they will respond. We continue with Part 2 of our series on the Lost Son; and will look at the father's response to the son who has come home. Will the son be met with recriminations? Anger? Disownment? The father's response may surprise us.
As Christ's body we are to be a blessing to our neighbors around us. There are people in our community who do not have a church home. God is calling each of us to reach out to them. Please be in prayer. How is God asking you to reach out? I look forward to worshiping this you this Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
