The Prodigal Son is a story that many of us know well. A young son takes his inheritance from his father. He leaves home and squanders the inheritance on “wild living.” A famine strikes and the son has no money. He is living among the pigs when he decides to return home, ask for forgiveness and work as his father’s hired hand. The story takes a bit of a twist when, instead of the father shaming his son and casting him out, he welcomes him home. The father sees his son from a distance and, as if awaiting his return, runs to greet him. He throws his arms around his son. A feast is thrown in the young son’s honor.

When the elder brother asks his father why the younger son deserved a party, the father replies, “This brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found.” What a powerful story Jesus shares with us about love, grace, forgiveness and coming home.

This Sunday we have a chance to hear this Scripture through the eyes of our graduating seniors, as they share about their experiences, struggles and hopes. We will also hear from the Children’s Choir, the Jubilate and Canticle Choirs, the Trinity Handbell Choir, and other special music from our youth.

Things might look a little different in worship this Sunday.  The youth have worked hard planning this service and are excited to worship together. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
