Ezekiel 37:1-14

Year A - Fifth Sunday in Lent or Conviction [5]
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!
