Some thoughts on John 11

I have been thinking about Narcan
and Lazarus
and how glibly we accept the miracle
that is bringing back to life.

We underestimate the complexity
of the grief
of those two sisters,

and we scramble desperately,
avoiding, like
a bad smell in a graveyard,

Jesus’ request —
“Unbind him and set him free.”

  1. Stunning. Powerful connection of narcan and Lazarus, and how we take miracle for granted.
