Can these bones live?


Seeing all the loss in the valley of dry bones, God asks the prophet Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” It seems odd that God is asking the human what is possible. Or, maybe God is asking if the human has faith or hope about what we see as possible.

This week, as we journey with Jesus toward death and resurrection in the Gospel of John, we experience the “raising of Lazarus” from the dead. The friend he could have saved while healing the blind man but didn’t. But then he did. How is this possible?

Impossible? We have been told that with God, all things are possible. I’m possible, you’re possible.

Hope helps us navigate the impossible. Good times and bad times, we hold onto hope.

I look forward to seeing you in the room or on Zoom this Sunday at 10 am.

Keep the faith,
Rev. Michael Cronin
