It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. Here at Hometown Friends Church we are getting toward the end of a series on the book of John. The pastor asked for the name of a person from the book of John that stood out. There were a lot of responses from the congregation. The man who said Lazarus set my mind in motion. After the service I asked him how many years it has been since his health crisis. He wasn’t thinking about that when he mentioned Lazarus, but I think he understood why it stimulated my mind to recall that situation. Although what happened nine years ago was not as dramatic or as immediate as Christ calling, “Lazarus, come forth,” I believe J.J.’s comeback from death’s door was one of Christ’s miracles.
