Lent Reflection: The Return of the Prodigal Son

 So he got up and went to his father.

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms round him and kissed him.

– Luke 15.20

The Centre for Barth Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary posted this picture on Facebook last night and it has stuck with me through today.
