Below is the sermon from March 6th. This week, in the River of Life process, we considered the themes of forgiveness and reconciliation, events or relationships, places, people, in need of restoration, release and renewal. The Parable of the Prodigal speaks to these themes.
As we use the River of Life to reflect on our lives, and consider, too, our future, what are some of our experiences of forgiveness? What and who was involved? How do we feel when we forgive? How does it feel to be forgiven? Are there times we have experienced God’s forgiveness? Times we have been able to offer deep mercy ourselves to others? We reflect with gratitude this week, as well, for the gift of forgiveness, and God, who pours out mercy like a river.
