Sermon “Living Not Just Existing”
Ezekiel 37:11-14 NLT
 Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‘We have become old, dry bones-all hope is gone. Our nation is finished.’  Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel.  When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the LORD.  I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the LORD has spoken!'”
Dear Friends, I pray that this message finds you safe and well, if isolated during these days of the COVID19 pandemic. Though it pains our hearts not to be physically together, we are keeping our distance so as avoid sharing this dangerous and insidious disease as loving children of God should do. This week on Sunday morning, we will be trying something new to us – We will be utilizing technology to join together in worship at our usual time of 10:45 am from our homes. If you would like to join us, please send me an email at email@example.com and I will forward the instructions on how to join in via Zoom (an audio/video conferencing service) you will need a computer, tablet or smart phone and internet service.
Grace and Peace,
