  • In the Eastern Church, the Saturday before Palm Sunday is Lazarus Saturday. Not included in the 40 days of Lent or Holy Week, it is a transitional or "hinge" day, a joyful prelude to the difficult week to follow. Using John 11 and the traditional Russian Icon of the Raising of Lazarus, we shall go to Bethany with Jesus, meet his friends Mary and Martha, hear Him call Lazarus from all that would bind him and begin His own journey to death and resurrection. To paraphrase Jesus' invitation at the outset of John's gospel: "Come and see." 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Presenter: Bonnie Thurston, PhD
