Lent Course Material – The Return of the Prodigal Son
A chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt’s painting, The Return of the Prodigal Son, catapulted Henri Nouwen into a long spiritual adventure.
This Lent course, adapted from Nouwen’s book ‘The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming’ helps us to reflect on the meaning of the parable for our own lives.
How to join a group
Please sign up for a group, on the sheet in church, or email Linda Hauxwell, before 24 February. Groups will be posted in church from 3 March and a course CD and guide will be ordered per group; you may wish to read a copy of the book beforehand, but it is not necessary for the course.
The groups will run for 5 weeks and there will be a shared Lent groups’ supper during Holy Week on Wednesday 17 April at Christ Church URC.
