Year A - Fifth Sunday in Lent or Conviction 
April 6, 2014
We can talk about old bones and connected bones. We can also talk about contemporary bones that are uncared for. Today is a day that Americans celebrate 7.1 million more people having medical insurance. For them we rejoice and are thankful for the mystery that brought this through a dysfunctional legislative system.
Given the millions still left out of our cultural baseline for health care, there will still need to be a major revision to this tinkering with a capitalist insurance model. Until communal care is available for all (recognizing that individuals with additional resources will still be able to get additional care) every stop-gap modification will simply be delaying an eventual acknowledgment that basic health education/prevention and health care is a human right.
Imagine being a public microphone, like those most recently used in the Occupy movement, repeating what you have heard: Roll the Stone back for All; Come out from your Grave and Live.
Live the Spirit of G*D placed within you and the time and place you occupy. Prophesy!
