Hamlet’s Walnut Shell: Dry Bones and Lazarus

https://youtu.be/a7MmlsKqwec

Lent is typically a season of pilgrimage, of journeying with Jesus, and this year we are in the midst of an extraordinary journey!
For most of us, every familiar pattern has been altered or disrupted.
There are moments this “social distancing,” let alone, “sheltering at home,” can seem a little like being entombed, or at the very least, en-wombed, hibernating; developing.

There’s a story for that!

We may find nurture in our ancient literature, the lectionary stories for this week:
Ezekiel‘s vision of the valley of dry bones awakening to walk again – a vision of life reconstructing amidst desolation.
From the Newer Testament, comes the story of the resurrection of Lazarus – new life exiting a tomb.
