Through Lent and Passiontide there has been a long tradition in the Church of meditating on the events of the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, called the Stations of the Cross. In the latter part of the twentieth century a complementary devotion emerged, possibly from the Iberian peninsula, called the Stations of the Resurrection or the Stations of Joy. They provide much-needed resources for the celebration of the Great Fifty Days.
As with the Stations of the Cross, we move from station to station, reading an appropriate Bible passage and meditating on it. By using the resurrection appearances as a focus for reflection and meditation we have an opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the Easter mysteries of the resurrection of our Lord. The resurrection appearances are more than just stories or history, they are a record of personal encounters with our risen Lord, so we give silence and space to allow the liturgy to enable that encounter to happen anew today.

Eastertide is the Great Fifty Days of Easter. We’ve walked the long path of Lent, seen the cost of our sin, and the overwhelming love and mercy of God. Resurrection breaks in on us and bids us to praise God for His new life in Christ! This year, we’re particularly setting aside Easter as a time of celebration, worship, and witness to our community. Come join us!
Join us as we begin a journey towards Biblical Literacy and the Four Foundations! We begin on April 28th at 9 am. Our first session concludes on May 26th. We look forward to seeing you there!
