Psalm 14, I Timothy 1:12-17 and Luke 15:1-10
Hide and seek….a fun childhood game. I suppose adults play the game also but over time…..that’s perhaps less fun!
Lost and Found. Every big store or institution has such an office. Airports and luggage!
Home and away. A way of talking about sports games. Also a sense of not being in the familiar home but traveling from hotel to hotel maybe.
Our scriptures, especially the Story of the shepherd seeking the one lost sheep of the 99 speak to our experiences of “hide and seek,” “lost and found,” “home and away.” And what better day to hear about these experiences than a church Homecoming!
Memories and reminiscing take center stage on such a Sunday and rightly so! We remember home and we remember God bringing us home when we have been lost.
Sunday there will be laughter and food and a great rejoicing in just “being home”……..by the grace of God.
Tell someone they are missed, tell someone they are loved at Kedron.
