Luke 15:11-31

Like the younger son in this parable, we sometimes find ourselves far from God, distant from him, and exiled away from him, lost in a far-off land. It’s in those moments that we must journey back to him. That’s what this season of Lent is all about: Recognizing our alienation and exile from God, and then journeying back to him in repentance and assurance of his grace.

If you’re looking to go deeper into this sermon series, I’ve adapted parts of it from Alexander Schmemann’s book Great Lent, which I’ve found to be a helpful resource on understanding and journeying through the Christian season of Lent.
