Living Churches

In this sermon to kick off a “20/20 Visions” Stewardship campaign, we’ll explore one of the strangest passages in Hebrew Scripture. The prophet Ezekiel comes upon a valley of dry bones and Yahweh (God) asks him a profound question: “Can these bones live?” The story is full of metaphors for us to ponder as we explore the lifeblood, the sinew, muscle and breath that animates our congregation. How might we answer our callings and arise from whatever “dry valleys” we encounter as good stewards of a “living church?”
