Sunday April 2, 2017, Lent 5 – Reflection, Russ Daye. As we continue our walk through Lent, and our focus on letting things go, this week we will look at two Bible stories about death being replaced by life. Sometimes it’s hard to let go of the parts of our lives that have no life left in them, but growth, revitalization, and joyous living may require just such a letting go – as individuals, churches, and societies.

There are two songs framing this reflection, John Prine’s ‘Angel from Montgomery’ (Susan Zurawski, vocals) to begin, and at the conclusion Mary Chapin Carpenter’s ‘Jubilee’ (Kevin Parks, piano/vocals)
