Lent Four - Turning toward Home

This Sunday traditionally marks half way, the turning point, in the journey of Lent. Our readings (RCL Joshua 5:2-12; Psalm 32; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; and Luke 15:11-32) speak to that sense of turning toward home, of transition from one stage of the journey to the next, and becoming a new creation. It comes with the discomfort of needing to let the old die away and the excitement of the emerging new state of being.
