(This is the sermon I gave in response to John 11:1–45)

Lent is a time when we are forced to deal with things we would rather not. Like death. Remember how Lent started on Ash Wednesday? We heard the words — “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” We are confronted with our mortality and death, right in our face, quite literally. There’s no avoiding it. It’s meant to be uncomfortable and humbling. To remind us that we are in God’s hands, and we are not in control.
