Glen Scrivener Spoken Word: If You Had Been Here - Speak Life
Glen Scrivener explores grief through the death of Lazarus in this emotional spoken word poem. In John chapter 11, Jesus' best friend lies ill. His family beg Jesus to come and heal him. Jesus does not respond right away. When he shows up, Lazarus has been dead for four days. It seems he's too late. But to this tragedy Jesus brings two surprising gifts - tears and triumph. He cries at the grave then raises his friend from death. It's these tears and triumph that we need in the face of our own tragedies. Glen uses 'spoken word'- a powerful poetic format to convey deep truths in a modern way.
