Yes, you read that correctly.

I hope you die this week.

And that I do to too.

Sound a bit crazy?  Sure.

But I believe we need to do it all the same.

Over the Easter season our church community is learning about how spiritual growth happens through the story of the resurrection of Lazarus.

Yesterday we began with this idea:

You can’t have a resurrection without a death.

And if Jesus wants to give us a new life that is radically different from our old one- perhaps we’ll have to die to get it.

What does that look like?  How does it happen?

Those were the kinds of questions we kicked around yesterday.
