Luke 15:11-32: Departure and Return
Saturday, July 2, 2016
Jesus taught those who followed him with parables so that they might better understand his actions and words. Jesus continues to teach us each day with his loving actions and consoling words. Today we re-read the story of the prodigal son, the forgiving father and the envious brother. Today we find ourselves in these verses, and we give thanks to the Creator for allowing us to both leave and return.
For other reflections on this parable, enter The Prodigal Son in to the blog search bar and explore.

Over the next few weeks we will be away from easy internet access but we will be pausing to read scripture and to pray and reflect at noon, keeping those in The Noontime Circle in mid-day prayer. You may want to click on the Connecting at Noon page on this blog at: https://thenoontimes.com/connecting-at-noon/ Or you may want to follow a series of brief posts that begins today, inspired by paintings of the life of Jesus Christ that can be found at: http://www.jesus-story.net/painting_family.htm In these posts, we will have the opportunity to reflect on a scripture verse and an artist’s rendition of that event. Wishing you grace and love and peace in Christ Jesus.
