Join Rev. Sarah Hedgis for a special retreat to experience and meditate on Stations of the Cross and Resurrection: Pandemic Resilience, created by artist Mary Button. The traditional stories and images for each station are paired with contemporary stories of the COVID-19 pandemic, both struggle and resilience. You can read more below about Button’s decision to hold cross and resurrection together.
These stations will be set up throughout the sanctuary. At the beginning of the retreat, we will walk the stations together, and there will be a time of communal exploration and conversation about each station. After the group walks the stations, you are invited to find a space in the sanctuary or parish house to pray and meditate on your own using stations of the cross prayer cards. You will receive a copy of the station prayer cards to take home with you for continued meditation.
Lunch and coffee will be provided. *Please note: These are different from the stations along Pine Street.*
From Mary Button: The promise of the resurrection is with us always especially when we find ourselves in the shadow of the cross. So, I’m especially excited to share with you my first Stations of the Cross and Resurrection: Pandemic Resilience. I’m creating eight diptychs using the scriptural Stations of the Cross and pairing them with eight Stations of the Resurrection, which take viewers from the empty tomb to the road to Damascus where Saul becomes Paul.
