WEEK 1. THE JOURNEY BEGINS (Feb. 27-Mar. 5)

proved much longer than I realized.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son

WEEK 2. THE YOUNGER SON LEAVES (Mar. 6-12)

“Faith is the radical trust that home has always been there and always

will be there.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son

WEEK 3. THE YOUNGER SON RETURNS (Mar. 13-19)

“One of the greatest challenges of the Christian life is to receive God’s

forgiveness.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son

WEEK 4 . THE ELDER SON (Mar. 20-26)

“My true freedom I cannot fabricate for myself. That must be given to

goes out to me.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son

WEEK 5 . THE FATHER (Mar. 27-Apr. 2)

“Here lies hidden the great call to conversion: to look not with the eyes
