Lost and Found – an interactive exercise on Luke 15 for Lent 4C

lost-and-foundThree years ago, when Luke 15 came up in the lectionary, I tried something very different – in place of the sermon I tried an interactive exercise designed to help the congregation experience the parable. I was inspired by a lecture I heard down in Chautauqua when Jewish New Testament Scholar, Amy-Jill Levine was exploring the parables.

Listen to the interactive exercise/sermon here

You can watch Amy-Jill Levine’s lecture which inspired me to challenge the congregation to move beyond allegorizing this parable here (look real close and you’ll see me down near the front, just soaking it al in!

  1. Thanks for sharing the Amy-Jill Levine video. You might be interested in her book, “Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi.” The “lost”parables are in there, plus more. She’s an inspiration.
