Fourth Sunday in Lent: Worship at 8:00 & 10:30 am

505px-Rembrandt - The Return of the Prodigal Son detail - WGA19135

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32

Click Here to Read.


The psalm sets the tone this day: “Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sin is put away!” Happy are those who have “become the righteousness of God” in the merits of Christ Jesus. Happy are those for whom the forgiveness of God has “rolled away . . . the disgrace” of former times. Happy is the father at the return of his prodigal son. Happy are we that our sins are forgiven for Jesus’ sake. Rejoice!
