March 26 – Fifth Sunday in Lent – Can these bones live?
When you find yourself in a valley of dry bones, when all hope seems lost, when death and grief surround you, with desperation you might cry out, “Can these bones live?” In Ezekiel’s vision, God asks this question of us. Do we believe new life can come after death? Can we find hope when things are bleak? Can we really trust in God’s resurrection? While we look to God to carry us through the valley, God looks to us to embody hope for others. As we prepare to enter Holy Week, we remember how Jesus began his final journey toward resurrection: by returning to Judea after the death of his dear friend, Lazarus. As we walk through the valley of dry bones that leads Jesus to Calvary, let us seek out the hope that will stir in us and sustain us. John 11:1-45 | Ezekiel 37:1-14
