Tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy I will be starting a short series on Luke Chapter 15. It is best known for the parable of the Prodigal Son but that is part of a series of lost stories where we see a shepherd and a woman and a father finding that which was lost. Today this sermon took a twist as often happens when the preacher is surmising how to apply the text to the context he, or she, is in. We will spend 3 sermons in this chapter but tomorrow we will ask who Jesus was answering with these parables? We will ask who the lost are in our context? We will look at how Jesus sees repentance and grace. We might get a clue to why I use U2 and Mumford and Sons in a Jesus model.
In the evening (7pm) our Source worship band will lead us in an evening of praise. Their theme is Integrity: Living The Uncomfortable Faith. The speaker will be Jimbo McDowell from Youth Link. Another helpful night from our youth!
