Tuesday, March 28. Read Ezekiel 37:1-14. Why does God resurrect these slain dry bones? How does that explanation fit your understanding of God? Is it an exception to the normal order of life or part of God’s action in the world?
Words from the Word: He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord GOD, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.
– Ezekiel 37:3-5, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from John 11:1-45.
