The Days of Elijah & a Mexican Fiesta

Are you familiar with the song we sing at church by that name?

It is pretty popular.

The tune is catchy.

The beat is powerful.

And the words...

This coming Sunday we'll sing the song (TWICE)

...and we'll be looking at some of the words.

They come from a variety of passages in scripture and paint some very vivid pictures of God's work.

One of those pictures is from Ezekiel 37 (The Valley of Dry Bones). God tells the prophet to "prophesy to the bones". Seems crazy, doesn't it? To speak to a pile of bones and expect them to respond!?

You might as well talk to your toaster or your lawn mower.

But Ezekiel obeys. God moves. And things change.

What might God have in store for us this weekend if we obey?

Then following the service there will be a time of fellowship as we enjoy a Mexican Fiesta.

Hope you can join us. Maybe even invite a friend to lunch. And watch as God moves.

Grace & peace
