As spring arrives, the children return to school and we go for our jabs, there are signs of increasing hope – but there’s a way to go yet.
For thousands of years, Christians have used the forty days of Lent leading up to Easter as a time to reflect on the journey that Jesus took towards his death – and ultimate triumph.
Using the vivid images of Artist Jenny Hawke, we are painting a path to tell this ancient story, creating an opportunity to reflect.
His journey can speak right into our current circumstances.
The path may be painful but it leads to hope.
Inside the church, the same sequence of images is arranged like the traditional Stations of the Cross with words describing the journey and events as told in the Bible.
The terrible journey, though devastating, did not end in despair. On Easter Day we shall celebrate the ‘happy ending’, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
For millions of people, reflecting on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus has been a life-changing experience.
This has been a tough, tough year for so many of us and we need to make sense of it.
Walking the path alongside Jesus can lead us out of despair towards hope.
