#214: Sermon Haiku 12: John 11

This week’s haiku is for Will Brown,
 a local kid, only 7 years old who drowned
last Monday at Steps Beach.
We long for the day when there will be no more death.
‘Lazarus is dead.’
Jesus said,’I will wake him.’
But you said he’s dead!
Lazarus’ sisters:
Lord, if only you’d been here,
he’d still be alive.
Headed to the tomb
Jesus wept for their sorrow
Raging against death
He is Lord of life
Death can’t hold out against Him
‘Roll away the stone’
‘Lazarus, come out!’
Lazarus follows the voice
blinded by cloth wraps.
Take off the grave clothes
I am the Resurrection,
Hear my cry, and live.
