Sermon: My Other Brother

brothers 1“My Other Brother”

(May 11. 2014) The story we call “the Prodigal Son” leaves more questions about the older sibling than the younger, and tells us not only about God’s grace, but about our common responses to it. Have we lost sight of being God’s beloved children? Do we let that un-loved feeling infuse our treatment of others? (Luke 15:11-32)

This sermon was preached by request when I asked for topics or bible passages that members of the church found challenging. The person’s question: shouldn’t the older sibling have received a party, too? A fair question, and one I’m sure many of us ask.
