There’s no place like home. Ask any prodigal who has come back. (From a sermon)
Remember that line from The Wizard of Oz? We all feel that tug for home when we’re away. We’ve seen the heart-warming reunions of service men and women when they are reunited with their families after a long deployment away. But returning home is even more poignant for a child who is restored to family after an unhealthy experience away from home.
“We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.” So, the party began. (Luke 15:23-24)
