The Door Stands Widely Open by Joe Barnett
There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10
Ralph Connor, and Sky Pilot, tells of a young man who took to the road from a good home in Scotland and sashayed into his far country of sin and shame.
As he lay dying an early death due to his debauchery, he read a letter from his mother that had come that day. It ended: “And oh! Davie laddie, if ever your heart should turn homeward, remember the door stands widely open.”
That is the touching message of the Parable of the Prodigal Son. The loving Father keeps the door widely open, and angels gather to welcome the prodigal who repents and returns joyfully.
Never too bad, never too old, never too late to change.

Note from Mariana Long!
It is with a heavy heart that I have changed plans for my stay in Northern Ireland. At this time, I have delayed my flight until a later time – knowing it might need to be delayed or canceled altogether.
I have been in constant communication with the Christians in Coleraine, and their world has “closed down,” just as we have here in the USA. So what I had planned would be impossible to accomplish there. Perhaps in the fall, things will be different. All of us are on a “wait and see” schedule, so that is where I am at this time.
We must pray for the Christians the world over who do not have the same capabilities we have to communicate and encourage one another. Hopefully, this situation will soon pass . . . in the meantime, may we be patient and loving toward one another and be obedient to the powers that be.
I so appreciate and love you all, Mariana Long.
