Stations are places where people wait while they are going from one place to another. A school-bus stop is like a station. People wait at train stations or bus stations or airports. Think of some stations where you have been.
With the Stations of the Cross, these stations become places where people take time to think about Jesus as he went to die on a cross. Stations of the Cross is a series of artistic representations depicting Christ Carrying the Cross to his crucifixion in the final hours of Jesus before he died. They show us how much Jesus loved us. The object of the Stations is to help us make a spiritual pilgrimage of prayer and devotion, through meditating upon the chief scenes of Christ’s sufferings and death.
Navigation through the Stations of the Cross at BLC is self-guided. You do not need to rush – please take your time, as long as you need. You do not even need to go through all of the Stations of the Cross on one day. You may want to stay at one Station with Jesus for a few days before you move to another Station.
Whatever you decide, Jesus is with you and He loves you.
This is an open event. All are welcome at The Father’s House this Holy Week, Monday – Wednesday, 8pm onwards. On Thursday and Friday, the Stations of the Cross will be made available after Maundy Thursday Service and Good Friday Service respectively.
