Rethinking Stations of the Cross

Reflecting on the Stations of the Cross is a practice that isn’t real well known among United Methodists. Reflection on the various stations can be a powerful experience and can help individuals connect with the events surrounding the last week of Jesus’ life.

There are many ways to reflect on the Stations of the Cross. Here is a video from the United Methodist Committee on Communications that highlights how one church made their Stations of the Cross experiential. Perhaps this church’s creativity can help you find other ways to reflect on Jesus’ last week.

Signs of Resurrection – Ian Morgan Cron

Ian Morgan Cron was asked where he saw signs of resurrection. He relates a retreat he led for worship leaders and what he discovered and what he is discovering. While not everyone will agree with what he says about worship trends, I love what he says about silence and noise. Perhaps it is time to realize that:

It is best to learn to silence the faculties and to cause them to be still, so that God may speak. РSt. John of the Cross
