Pleased to Dwell

December 12 2021, 10am
Ezekiel prophesied a story about God bringing to life a valley of dry bones. Rather than think of zombie films when we hear this passage, can we imagine that we are the dry bones into which God has breathed life? Advent reminds us that our very lives are the place where God dwells. "Pleased in flesh with us to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel" is a line from a Christmas carol. How often do we consider that God is pleased to dwell with us? The way we live is a response to the gift of God's very breath within us.
