Luke 15, Lost and Found — Tod Gobledale, UK

Luke 15:1-32
17th Sunday after Pentecost, Year C


Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that is lost until you find it? saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’…   –Luke 15


Using these pictures, tell the story of a little girl who becomes separated from her mother/aunt/sister.  She doesn’t know what to do or where to go.  Her mother/aunt/sister looks for her until she is found.


How do you think the little girl feels when she cannot find her mother/aunt/sister?

How do you think her mother/aunt/sister feels when she cannot find the little girl?

How do you think they feel when they find each other?

Have you ever lost something and had to look very hard to find it?  How did you feel when you found it?


God, thank you for the love that motivates us to not give up, like the mother who kept looking for the little girl until she found her.   Amen.
