  • A Painting, the parable of the prodigal son and it's deeper meaning | 2/21-3/21 | 10-11:30 am

    Join Rev. Janet Maxwell & Rev. Rick Saylor  for this 5 week study.

    A chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt’s “The Return of the Prodigal Son” was transforming for Jesuit priest Henri Nouwen. It led him to meditate and then write on its deeper meaning for our lives today.  Using his book “The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming” and the biblical parable itself, we will examine the various themes in this parable about life and relationships and how they speak to us today.  Come  prepared to dive into the depths of this parable. Books are $12 and available in the Welcome Center.
