Hope is the theme of our readings this week. Ezekiel spends some time with dry bones as the people of Israel feel hopless after recieving punishment from God. Paul tells us that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus and implores Christians to live in the Holy Spirit rather than in the flesh. Finally, Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead, giving us the hope that all who die in Christ will be raised on the last day.
Old Testament: Ezekiel 37:1--14
Epistle: Romans 8:1--11
Gospel: John 11:1--53
My name is Tom. I'm fascinated by the ways that people, ideas, current events and theology interact with each other.
