RSVP #3 - Older Brothers

In this sermon, Kurt looks at the parable of the prodigal son, specifically noticing how our perception (like that of the older brother in the story) shapes whether or not the Kingdom party is good news. This third installment of RSVP invites us to awe in the grace of God, the God who meets us out in the field with open arms.
