Take me home to the place I belong

Take me home to the place I belong.

Pastor Eric said that there are themes in today’s parables.

Lost, who is lost? What do sinners mean? Who are the clean ones?

In Luke 15:1-10, Jesus tells two stories that suggest a curious connection between the lost being found and sinners repenting.  God takes the initiative to find sinners, each of whom is so precious to God that his or her recovery brings joy in heaven.

We are on a journey and we can’t know what we will discover on our journey.

God always moves past our past and is waiting for us with open arms in God’s future.

St Mark is at the cross roads and is a place where all are welcome here.

Take me home country roads.
