40 daysAs our Lenten journey draws closer to climax, we find the path winding through Ezekiel’s valley of dry bones. We don’t have to look far around us to see our own dry bones… empty promises, bored transactions, indifferent encounters, and defeated dreams.

We are called to Ezekiel’s vision that ”even these dry bones can live”. Somewhere the Spirit blows and is waiting to come and enliven what is dead and barren. Somewhere there are people who still love and care and are driven by the will to be part of society’s relentless push for transformation. Followers of the Way of Christ remain focused on such a vision and are alert to the signs of life and vitality that dry bones hide. May Ezekiel’s vision inspire us today…
