Easter on the island

I went to church on Easter -- all the island children (supervised very closely by their mothers) behaved perfectly. Afterwards, though, they ran up the cliff and hurled boulders down:

-- which I think is quite appropriate for Easter.

After all, to many children I've talked to -- here and in America -- the main miracle and mystery is how they managed to get the stone off the entryway. On my way to church, some of the boys were telling me what I could expect from the service (songs, the Easter story), and one said,
"It's mainly about moving the boulder."
