The Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen
The book we are studying during Lent steps in and discovers the characters in the famous painting by Rembrandt: "Return of the Prodigal." This is not the first time Rembrandt painted the Prodigal Son (he had made several others versions), but it was the last one he painted (1668).
Nouwen will shares his insights from the perspective of the various people in the painting: the bystanders, the prodigal son, the elder brother. Which one are we? Are we all of them?
Come to our adult Finney Class, Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
“Looking deeply into myself and then around me at the lives of other people, I wonder which does more damage, lust or resentment? There is so much resentment among the ‘just’ and the righteous.’ There is so much judgement, condemnation, and prejudice among the ‘saints.’ There is so much frozen anger among the people who are so concerned about avoiding ‘sin.’” (71)
