Pentecost and the Paralytic Church

For Sunday’s Pentecost worship, we have two familiar and astonishing scriptures: Ezekiel 37:1-14 and Acts 2:1-21. Both are filled with dramatic poetic imagery that often strikes readers as imponderable possibilities. As you re-read these scriptures, imagine yourself in a valley of dry bones and of hearing multiple languages all at once. Do a little word search for the etymology and meaning of the terms paralysis and paralytic. Thinking not only physically, but also psychologically and spiritually, what do the words paralysis and paralytic convey to you, especially if associated with the church?
