This coming Sunday, I am preaching/reflecting on Lazarus. it's a story that I have preached upon a fair few times before, and have, at various points reflected on in some depth. It was quite tempting simply to re-use some of my past work - especially a reflection that I wrote around eight years ago and shared on this blog. In the end, I felt that wasn't the right thing to do - not because re-using is wrong, but because I wasn't sure if they went where I wanted/felt led to go.
Anyway, I thought I'd revive them here by links to a couple of past blog posts:
The reflection from the prespective of Lazarus in March 2009
A poem I came across in April 2014
