It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. It would not be difficult to turn the Scripture this morning into a horror movie. It’s from the book of Ezekiel. God is showing Ezekiel a valley full of dry bones. Ezekiel is told to prophesy to the bones saying that God will attach tendons and cover the bones with skin and then breath live into what had been very dry bones. Ezekiel sees all this happen in his vision as dry bones become a vast army.

The message for Israel (and the message for us in the pews at Hometown Friends Church) is that God can bring life even when hope has dried up to the point where all that is left is very dry bones. Hope can be risky, but maybe it’s better to have hoped and lost than to never have hoped at all.
