“Stations of the Cross” originated in 17th century Catholicism as a way to mark the movements of the last day of Jesus’ earthly life. There are a couple different versions of the original list, and these fourteen stations are adapted from those. Each station features a Scripture reading and a reflection in audio, visual, or written form.
Holy Week is one of the most significant weeks of the Christian year, and even though faith communities are having to do things a little (or a lot) differently this year, we hope these digital stations will be a way for us to walk through these holy moments together, even while we’re apart.
- a Bible
- some paper or a journal

Head to this Google slideshow (no sign in required), make sure you’re on the first slide, and, if the slideshow doesn’t start automatically, click “Present” in the top right corner. Then you can work your way through the stations at your own pace. We hope you’ll approach these stations in whatever way works best for you — you can do them all at once of course, but if you need to break them down into smaller chunks, that’s okay too. Either way, try not to rush it. 🙂 They will be posted at Noon and 3:00 pm each Sunday, April 5th – Saturday, April 11th.
These stations were compiled by Rev. Rachel Penmore of UKirk UTK and Rev. Allison Wehrung of UKirk Ole Miss.
