Jesus pursues people into the “far countries” of human existence, blazing a trail for us and making it possible for us to minister and serve in Christ’s name even in the most challenging circumstances. Joni Sancken shares a message based on Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32.
The EMU wind ensemble will open chapel with “On An American Spiritual” by David Holsinger, an instrumental arrangement of the tune “Were you there?”
