Wednesday, September 4

It has been quite a day.  I think it's best handled by different posts, each about one of the major events.

We started out the day with devotions overlooking the ravine.  John 11 describes the story of Lazarus, and Neil's point was that God sometimes doesn't answer our prayers in the way we would like, even through what we are asking for is a good thing. Verses 4 and 15 gives the reason that Lazarus died, so that "the Son of God may be glorified through it", and, for the disciples, "that you may believe".  Jesus told them "I am the resurrection and the life", and bringing Lazarus back to life drove that point home in a big way.
