Listen to a reading of Holy Week in the Gospel of Luke set to the images from A Cartoonist’s Guide to Luke.
A lost sheep, a lost coin, a lost son. These are three parables that Jesus tells in Luke 15. He told them in response to the criticism he received from the religious leaders. They scorned him for hanging around with tax collectors and sinners. This sermon looks at these stories from the perspective of the older brother. He resented the “lost son” and didn’t thing he deserved to be found. How often do we feel that way about “those people?”
