WGRG liturgy booklet 9

A liturgy based on the parable of the Prodigal Son

This liturgy was first used in Glasgow at Holy City (WGRG’s monthly workshop & worship event) and has been used in very different contexts in at least three different continents since then.

Featuring a three-part dramatic depiction of the parable, suggested congregational conversations, and symbolic action, A Family Affair allows us to reflect on what we might mean by ‘Christian’ family values.
