A chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt’s painting, The Return of the Prodigal Son, catapulted Henri Nouwen in a long spiritual adventure.In his very famous book of the same title, he shares the profound personal meditation that led him to discover the place where God chose to live.This sure Lent, which has been adapted from the book, helps us to reflect on the meaning of the parable for our own life.Divided into five sessions, the course moves through the parable exploring our reaction to history: the youngest son of departure and return, the father of the restoration of filiation, the eldest son of resentment and compassion of the father.All of us who have experienced loneliness, sadness, jealousy or anger to respond to the persistence of themes of returning home, affirmation and reconciliation.Each session on the CD includes excerpts from Henri Nouwen’s book, and general information about Henri Nouwen’s life, as well as suggestions for reflection.Notes for Group Leaders and written questions for group discussions are also included in the attached brochure.
