Sermon excerpt: 

“I’ll breathe my life into you,” God says, “and you will live.”

God speaks this promise through Ezekiel to the valley of dry bones, and the lifeless bones are transformed into living, breathing bodies.

God speaks this promise through the Holy Spirit to the disciples, and the church – the body of Christ on earth – is born.  

And on this day of Pentecost, God again speaks this promise of the breath of life and irrational hope to us.
