The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming
October 13, 27, November 3
led by Chuck Williamson
Rembrandt's painting "The Return of the Prodigal Son" evokes the loving tenderness of a father who has found what was lost. For 3 weeks, Chuck will guide discussion on the famous parable the painting depicts. You'll likely find yourself in some character of the painting.

Please read the parable before class linked here: Luke 15:11-32


Henri Noun's book Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming will serve as a guide to discussion. Reading it is not essential to be part of the conversation, but you might choose to read along as a personal study.
