Fourth Sunday in Lent (Year C)

Novelist Thomas Wolfe's statement: You Can’t Go Home Again, is half true. The other half of the truth, however, is told by the story of the Prodigal Son, who discovered that because of love and forgiveness he could go home again. Hear music from the Prodigal Son’s point of view on the next Sing For Joy.
