Year C, Proper 19, Pentecost 17 – Sept. 11, 2016 – Luke 15:1-10

There’s not a day that goes by that each of us doesn’t spend at least some time trying to find something we have misplaced or just outright lost. “Where’s my wallet?” “Honey, have you seen my keys?” Your glasses, a bill you need to pay, your cell phone, a telephone number you wrote down on a scrap of paper, a piece of jewelry you know you put back in its place the last time you wore it.
