Gospels / Jesus / Lectionary / Lent / New Testament / sin / Year C

The following is a reflection on Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32, the Gospel lesson for Lent 4C, according to the Revised Common Lectionary. There is an arrogance that comes with believing and proclaiming that God – the God who created the heavens and the earth—loves us. It’s arrogant. I mean, it’s true. In the fullest and most wonderful sense, it’s true. But, it’s arrogance. A holy arrogance.
