Ezekiel 37:21-28, Canticle
Jeremiah 31:10-13, John 11:45-56

Gather your people, O Lord

Paraphrasing Martin Luther King, “with our faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of all people into a beautiful symphony.”

This wasn’t just Martin Luther King’s dream. It is God’s dream.

All three readings talk about gathering us. This doesn’t mean we must all be uniform:
living in the same place;
speaking the same language; or
celebrating the same rituals.

Instead, we are called to gather as members of an orchestra. Each with our unique gifting. Together bringing about the opus of God. We must learn to live in harmony.
