Can one be lost in one’s own home?  In the parable of the lost coin (Luke 15:1-10), the coin is lost in its own home.  Furthermore, the being lost is entirely not of its own doing, simply a result of how life flowed.

In our own lives, we too can feel lost and disoriented, even in our own homes, for reasons entirely beyond our control.  A reflection on the work of God in those times.

We have our own copy at the church, but the lighting prevented a good photo from being taken.
