Sermon Series: Cultivating & Letting Go | Lent 2019
Sermon Title: Cultivating Kinship
Scripture Reading: Luke 15:1-3a, 11b-32
Luke 15 begins with two crowds of people: one drawing near to Jesus and the other grumbling. The differences between these two groups appear, at first glance, to be insurmountable. Jesus responds to the crowd with a series of parables, culminating with the Parable of the Prodigal Son and the Older Brother. On the fifth Sunday of Lent, Pastor Kelly invites us to let go of the lies that keep us separated from each other and to live into the good news of Jesus Christ, to move beyond tolerance and acceptance to a radical new posture: kinship.
