Leader: I am Lazarus. I am the one labelled as 'ill'. They don't ask me how I feel. They talk about me, not to me. When I am labelled, people do not see me for who I am. But thankfully, Christ sees me for who I am.
All: I am a child of God. I am Lazarus.
I believe in God who called Lazarus from the tomb.
Yes - God calls me too from the closets of fear, self-denigration and despair. Amen.
