Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Lent 4 – Lost and Found – For Jesus, God was Love before and above all; and when he was criticised for befriending the dregs of society that no decent person would be seen with, he told a parable about a young man who couldn't wait for his father to die before getting hold of his share of the father's estate. Moving out into the world, the son squandered everything his father had given him, and lived for a while in poverty and filth. Coming to his senses, he went back to his father to beg for a job and avoid starvation, and his father welcomed him back with open arms, no questions asked. His son had been lost and was found again. God does not ask questions when he embraces us. We are the ones being sought, and it is God who does the seeking. May we continue to love, and allow ourselves to be loved.
Luke 15: 1-3, 11b-32
