Lent Series: Stations of the Cross
Spiritual Direction and Creative Arts
Tuesdays • March 7, 14, 21, 28 • 6:30-8:30pm
A simple thought can be a poem. A stick figure can convey emotion. That’s what many participants have experienced in sessions sponsored by our Spiritual Direction and Creative Arts group. They know when we say, “no experience in the arts necessary,” we mean it. So please join us for our March Lent series where we’ll be focusing on the Stations of the Cross, the devotion also known as the Way of the Cross.
For centuries pilgrims have offered prayer at a series of places in Jerusalem traditionally associated with our Lord’s passion and death. That tradition is observed during Lent in thousands of churches throughout the world at fourteen stations, depicted in various art forms, usually in church sanctuaries. Our group will meet in four sessions to choose the stations we find special meaning in, and either paint or write our thoughts about them. Our work will be included in a special Good Friday service at 6:00pm.
Sessions open with prayer and meditation, include time for creative expression, and end with the sharing of ideas and snacks. All members of the congregation are welcome to attend – and we reiterate: no experience in the arts is necessary!

Praying With (and For) our Enemies
Sunday • March 26 • 12:00pm
led by the Rev. Jennifer A. Reddall
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:43-48)
In these times of divisiveness, Christians are called to pray. But how? What is the Good Word that allows us to pray for people that are cruel or demean us? And how do we pray through our own anger? Join Jennifer as she guides us through prayers from the Book of Common Prayer, scripture, and the Christian tradition.
