A series on the parables and miracles of Jesus 

Have you ever lost something? Have you ever been lost yourself?

In Luke 15:1-32, Jesus tells 3 parallel stories about something getting lost, searched for, and eventually found. Through these relatable stories, Jesus shines a light on the grace of the Heavenly Father and the call on His followers to reach the lost in this world, welcoming them home with abundant joy.
