For centuries, Christians have followed and prayed the stations, which depict the final hours of Jesus’ life. The 14 stations begin with Jesus being condemned to death and end with his body being laid in the tomb. Following the stations is a pilgrimage of prayer and meditation on Christ’s suffering and death.
St. Dunstan’s parishioners, led by our seminarian Tim Black, have created our own version of this ancient practice. The stations are spread over our beautiful five acres of wooded land in suburban Atlanta. We invite you to come and walk them. But through the wonders of modern technology, you can pray these stations wherever you are.
I have walked these stations on our grounds several times. But when I saw the photos and read the artists’ explanations of their creative process and the meaning they found in creating these pieces, I was moved to tears.
I invite you to make this journey part of your Lenten discipline.
