(Online Worship) Hamlet’s Walnut Shell: Dry Bones and Lazarus

Sunday is the 5th and final Sunday of Lent.
We are in the midst of an extraordinary journey!
Next week the celebration of Palm Sunday merges into the beginnings of Holy Week as we approach Easter on April 12.
For most of us, every familiar pattern has been altered or disrupted.
In these times, when some of us can feel something just a little like being entombed, we may find nurture in our ancient literature.
The lectionary stories for this week are powerful:
Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones – a vision of life reconstructing amidst desolation.
From the Newer Testament, comes an even more vivid example, the story of the resurrection of Lazarus.

Here are links if you would like to remind yourselves of these stories:

Ezekiel
Lazarus

We will continue to worship together through the ZOOM platform.
We greatly appreciate the responses this past week that have helped us improve and explore options. Thank you!
