This post originally appeared on March 24, 2013 - Palm Sunday a year ago. Because this was the text and theme of this morning's message in church, I decided to share it again.
When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
"I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
This picture was taken at Point Wolfe in Fundy National Park, New Brunswick, while we were on vacation in August 2012. The little stone figures called "inukshuk" are seen throughout New Brunswick, alongside highways and at tourist spots. I assume they are built by locals and tourists alike. My kids built a few themselves. The traditional use of the inukshuk for the native peoples may have been for navigation, to mark sites for fishing or hunting, to mark food caches, or to designate important places; and were built in various sizes. After I chose this picture, I found that the meaning of the word inukshuk is "something which acts or performs the function of a person" - a person-substitute. If the people of God keep silent, the rocks will be the people-substitutes to give him praise.
