In Ezekiel 37:1-14 we hear the story of Ezekiel's encounter with God in the valley of dry bones. It is a barren and lifeless place where Ezekiel is called to speak the words that God commands. In John 11:1-27 the disciples, Mary, Martha, and Lazarus all face their own times of hard, dry places. Pastor Ross Erb spoke of the various “valley of dry bones” that we face in life. Can we choose to open ourselves to catch the breath of God that will lift us and turn us in new directions? Can we accept that even if our difficult situations do not change, God is present with us?
