Good morning, gals and pals! It may be March, but where I am, it's not spring yet! In fact, it has dipped below zero the last two nights. Hard to imagine that desert and the Valley of Dry Bones where I am. But the question still applies, for Ezekiel, for Lazarus, and maybe for us: Can these bones live? Is the spirit blowing through your words as you prepare this Sunday? Are you imagining those bones coming together? Or are you Lazarus, still wrapped in bandages, dazed and confused, but walking out of the tomb? (I must say, one of the weirder images in Scripture.) Or perhaps you are grieving with Mary and Martha and Jesus. Or, perhaps your Lenten journey has been taking you in another direction entirely.
I have (as always) Fair Trade Coffee brewing, Good Earth tea, for those who prefer it, and an assortment of muffins (my favorites are banana chocolate chip, but bran is also available) and bagels. Feel free to share your own treats.
What are you working on today? If not a sermon, are you looking for a children's message? Or have you got one to share?
Or do you just want to pull up a chair and feel the coffee's steam and let us know how the season is treating you?
P.S. daylight saving time begins Sunday, too.
