The March 6, 2016 message was abbreviated to allow time for a hymn sing.
“Yet over and over again I have left home. I have fled the hands of blessing and run off to faraway places searching for love! This is the great tragedy of my and of the lives of so many I meet on my journey. Somehow I have become deaf to the voice that calls me the Beloved, have left the only place where I can hear that voice, and have gone off desperately hoping that I would find somewhere else what I could no longer find at home.” - Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming
