Nick reading at the second station.
Every Wednesday at 5:30 at St. Andrew's we do the stations of the cross. The service is very powerful and moving. For those of you who have never done the stations, let me give you a brief description. There are fourteen stations with a picture of each station placed around the church chapel. The pictures represent the last events leading up to Jesus crucifixion and burial in the tomb. We each take turns leading a station including children who can read. The liturgy for the readings comes from Isaiah, Psalms, and John. As we read for each station I can see in my mind's eye each event and I am frequently brought to tears.
You might ask yourself, why would you want to do this. It is so sad. I guess I do it because I think it is important to keep in mind the sacrifice Jesus made for us. So, I invite you to carve out thirty minutes from your busy day and join us this Wednesday.
