Heard of Stations of the Cross? Well, this is Stations of the Resurrection. The cross was never meant to be a stop-off point, but more a door through to the next stage of the story. Here we follow 17 stations which take the story on.
It’s quite long, and (I hope) quite thought provoking. So, I’d suggest using the video a bit at a time. Stop when you need to, and return when you’re ready.
Here are links for a service for this Sunday, the 2nd of Easter. There is a video and a file with the liturgy used. As an extra bonus Rev’d Karen Curnock has also provided a contribution for this Sunday.
Here’s a reflection, using the Stations of the Cross, for Good Friday. There is no text to follow, simply a reflection to view/listen to. It lasts 23 minutes. So, ideal to start at 2.37pm. Or whenever suits.
Here’s a service for use on Maundy Thursday. There’s a liturgy that can be downloaded and printed or viewed on your mobile device and also a video of the service. The service is probably best used later in the day. You may wish to have a candle, as a focal aid for your reflections, and also a bowl of water, even some bread and wine.
Here’s a service for use on Palm Sunday. There’s a liturgy that can be downloaded and printed or viewed on your mobile device and also a video of the service. Image and sound quality are improved, and I will be working to make the next ones better. Any comments would be welcome.
Living in current times can be stressful. Living in isolation raises new problems of its own. Being distanced from our usual support network may make life even harder, even if we have a faith. The Church of England has just brought out a resource to help promote good mental health.
Currently, attendance at a funeral, either at the graveside or at a crematorium, is limited to ten people. This means there many who cannot say that final goodbye to those they have known and loved. Whilst we are intending to offer memorial services once the coronavirus restrictions are lifted, there is still a need to mark the loss of a loved one now. Here’s a link to a new resource from the Church of England for those who cannot be present but wish to say goodbye: https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2020-03/Funerals%20liturgy%20at%20home%20public.pdf
Here’s a service for use on the 5th Sunday of Lent. There’s a liturgy that can be downloaded and printed or viewed on your mobile device and also a video of the service. Please note that the sound quality isn’t too good at the start and in one or two other places. This is the first video I’ve produced in many years, and things should improve. Any comments would be welcome.
