Why not tell the Easter story through the eyes of the stone that was rolled in front of Jesus’s tomb. We have found a great book called, “The Song of a Silent Stone” that does just that.
As the words of Michael Clay, a priest of the Diocese of Raleigh, N.C. says,” I strongly recommend this book for one’s personal reflection. One of the fascinating metaphors of scripture is that which describes the people of God as “living stones.” Here the profundity of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus, viewed from the perspective of the great stone rolled across the tomb of Jesus invites all who are “living stones” to a reflection on Christ’s role as the capstone of faith and our relationship to the One who has made us “living stones.”
I loved the description of Christ’s Transfiguration through the eyes of the stone. I pondered over the awesome scene and how exciting it would have been to watch.
“The Song of a Silent Stone,” is illustrated by Sheila Keefe of Santa Fe, New Mexico and written by monk Mark Delery. It is a resurrection parable that will bring a fresh perspective to your family this Easter. Why not check it out!
