West End United Methodist Church

What Do You See?

Speakers:Jefferson Furtado
Topics:Sunday service

Today Jefferson Furtado is the guest preacher, and the scripture is from the vision in which God shows Ezekiel a valley filled with dry bones.  When asked if they can live, Ezekiel replies to God that God knows.  As a picture of the hopelessness of Israel at the time, with Jerusalem in ruins, to look beyond the hopelessness of the dry bones is to look toward a reality that is beyond what one can see.  That reality is God’s reality, and God can make that reality our reality, but God also calls us to faith and to help that reality come about, just as God called Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones and then to prophesy to the breath to enliven them.  Justice and love are components of God’s reality, and we’re called to imagine such reality and to participate.    (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
