The wilderness is a place of new life – resilient life.
Lent V – Sunday, March 29
Pastor Steve Clark preaching
For Sunday, READ Ezekiel 37:1-4 and John 11:1-45 and REFLECT: There are several scenes in the John story: Jesus with his disciples (vs. 1-16), Jesus with Martha (vs. 17-27), Jesus with Mary (vs. 28-32), and Jesus at the tomb (vs. 33-45). Pick one of the scenes and imagine yourself as one of the characters in that particular encounter with Jesus. What do you understand about what Jesus says and does, and what confuses or upsets you? What question(s) do you have for Jesus? What message(s) do you think are in this story for our congregation and for our world?
