Luke 15:11-32 I love the American folksinger Carrie Newcomer. I first heard her music some years back at a church conference in Indianapolis. We were gathered in a large convention center and were suffering under an evening emcee trying desperately to be funny. So, when this well-intentioned “comedian” introduced our evening’s musical entertainment, I slumped in my seat. I was sure I was about to hear music as bad as the feeble attempt at comedy had been. I was so very wrong!
