I found this on YouTube, and honestly, I have no idea when this production was filmed, and it's a little weird, but somehow and nevertheless I found it captivating. The key for me is at 1:12, the rendering of the best verse ever:
"I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out." Luke 19:40, NRSV
I haven't preached this favorite text yet. The first two times in my ministry Luke came around in the lectionary, I arranged a dramatic reading of the Palm and Passion story much like the one we'll do on Thursday night at Y1P. This year my colleague is preaching, so I don't have the impetus to put the swimming thoughts together into a whole.
But it occurs to me this year that in a moment of panentheism, Jesus might just be suggesting that all of Creation is so suffused with God that if people can't see it, Creation will sing the song for them, because he is God and he is with them.
And with us.
Happy Palm Sunday!
