Luke 19:28-40

2007-03-28 — “And I was round when…Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate.” – Mick Jagger

BIBLE PASSAGE — After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, saying, “Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’” So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” They said, “The Lord needs it.” Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.” — Palm Sunday, Series B

    It took me a couple of moments to get it. I’m still on my first cup of coffee at 9:14 AM EDT.

    Mick might not be that old, but Keith & Charlie sure look as if they are!

    Does anyone who is not at least a 40-something even know who Mick Jagger is?

    The musical group wasn’t just “the Stones”; they were the ROLLING stones. In the text, it wasn’t just any old stones either; they were the SILENT stones. Adjectives are indeed important. If only the ROLLING stones could learn to be silent!

    Sadly, adjectives are mostly lost on Ted.

    Pastor Jim,

    I was just on Faith Lens planning my lesson for Sunday School, and they had a link to your site! I knew there was something I was missing from Valpo… I hope all is well over there

    I’m watching George Burns on channel 13 (public television) and just could not resist.
