Rembrandt's Return of the Prodigal
Henri Nouwen, the famous author, once gave a postcard print of this painting to individuals who had come to hear him speak.
He asked them to look at the hands of father--one hand masculine and strong, and the other hand feminine and gentle.
What a wonderful way to illustrate the unconditional love God has for all of us prodigals, full of grace and truth.
In what ways does this painting speak to you?
