Dried and Refreshed

Dear Dry Bones,

In Ezekiel 37, Ezekiel and his fellow Israelites are in exile. They are cut off from their Temple, friends, farms, and relatives.

In the midst of the deep despair of living in exile the question is asked, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

The response is, “Master God, only you know that.” (Ezekiel 37:3)

Elie Wiesel, Noble Laureate and Holocaust survivor, reflected on Ezekiel in his book, ”Congregation: Contemporary Writers Read the Jewish Bible.” He pointed out that there is no date on Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones because every generation needs to hear, in it's own time, that these bones can live again.

Where are your bones feeling dry?  May the breathe of the Holy Spirit come this day to offer fresh life and hope.

See Ezekiel Chapter 37 for further reflection.

Prayers: Lord bring your Easter truth to all who mourn the death of Helen Erickson. For the Holy Spirit to come this Sunday as we celebrate the Pentecost (June 9) to stir anew among us. Let the bones who feel dry be exposed to Gods living fountain!

Holy Spirit “Rain Down!”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6K7IqvCIt0  

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
