A few days ago we had our second Silent Sunday, and the passage we studied at Faith Church was Luke 15:11-32, traditionally called The Parable of the Prodigal Son. Because it wouldn’t work to well to have a sermon on Silent Sunday, we had a time of guided reflection, punctuated with 5-minute periods of silence throughout. You can download the entire service PowerPoint presentation here (in PDF format).
So how about you? Do you identify with the younger son? The older one? In sermon discussion group after the service, a couple people said they also identified with the father. Maybe you have lost someone in your life, and you feel the same way?
As you look through the PDF, what name might you put on your name badge? Though we’re not in the worship service, do you need to surrender that name to the Lord and take your rightful, true name? “Son or Daughter of the King!”
