The Way of the Resurrection

This Sunday marks the beginning of the 4th week of Easter and the introduction of what I hope will be a new tradition at St. Paul’s – the Way of the Resurrection.

The Way of the Resurrection (also known as the Stations of the Resurrection) is a form of Christian devotion meant to encourage prayerful reflection on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In it participants are led through a series of images or sculptures depicting some of the events immediately following Jesus’ rising from the dead, in particular the encounters of the disciples’ with the risen Jesus.

Just as the Stations of the Cross are meant to help people delve, through payer and meditation, into the spiritual meaning of Jesus’ suffering and death, the Way of the Resurrection is meant to help us delve into the mystery of Christ’s victory over death and the promise of new life.

Thanks to everyone who helped to create and share this artistic and prayerful experience of the stories of Jesus’ resurrection. We hope that both creating these works of artistic devotion, and our time spent prayerfully reflecting on the mysteries which they represent, will draw us all more deeply into the new life of Jesus and help us to live more fully the Way of the Resurrection.

We look forward to you joining us!

    Curious about what difference the Resurrection of Jesus could possibly make for us today?

    “Surprised by Hope” is a six session video-based study featuring N.T. Wright that is designed to help us explore the full and breathtaking hope which Jesus and his Resurrection offers the world, and to better understand the implications of that hope for our lives today.
