“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” – Feb. 18, 2018

Melissa Florer-Bixler preaching at Raleigh Mennonite Feb. 18, 2018John 11:1-44 – The Death of Lazarus

Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, a time for prayer as we anticipate with sorrow Jesus’ death. This year Ash Wednesday was marked by the death of 17 students and teachers at the High School in Parkland, Fl. The Ash Wednesday cross contains ashes representing death. Melissa reminds us that the same oil is used to mark us as Christians when we are baptized. The scripture recounts Lazarus’ death and resurrection. A resurrection that allows us to believe in a new world where we are safe in God’s light. A world where we no longer fear death.
