Stations of the Cross: A Digital Prayer Walk

March 24th, 2020
This article is featured in the Sustaining Worship issue of Ministry During The Pandemic

The Stations of the Cross depict through artistic expression the path that Christ walked on the day of his crucifixion. This walk, a journey through passion and prayer, also known as the Way of the Cross, functions as devotion during the Lenten season for centuries.

The Stations of the Cross experience has great significance for the Lenten and Holy Week season of 2020. Our world faces a pandemic affecting our health and all aspects of daily living. This virtual prayer walk provides an opportunity to pause, ponder, and pray while you reflect on Christ’s journey and your own journey during this time of isolation and suffering.

The stations in this presentation are illustrated with photography provided by members of Belmont United Methodist Church, Nashville, as well as one United Methodist member at-large. The stations prescribed for this Way of the Cross are found in the United Methodist Book of Worship. The scriptures are from the Common English Bible.
