Series: Lord of Lent
Tears at the Tomb

John 11: 17-44, NRSV

Reflections

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

— C.S.Lewis
The Four Loves

  • Death is everywhere
  • Death of people, death of dreams
  • Louis C.K. hates cell phones (for kids)
  • Martha’s understanding of resurrection didn’t help her to grieve
  • Jesus know your name, and calls out your name, invite you to new life
  • Jesus gives us courage to face death in our lives
