Who I am
God asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?"
I read the writings of the early Friends and asked God, "Can't these old bones live?"
Ezekiel's valley filled with living beings.
God told me, "Not their bones, but yours must live today."
God told Ezekiel, "The people shall know I am God when they are brought forth from their grave."
"The day is coming and now is," said Jesus, "when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son. And those who will hear shall come forth from their grave."
This blog, then, is an invitation to hear.
