Description

Prayer for All Seasons: The Stations of the Cross in Advent, Lent, and Across the Year

Thursday evenings: October 24 & 31, and November 7 & 14, 2019
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

$100 for all four classes

The Stations of the Cross offer a pastoral and spiritual resource that can sustain us across all seasons. Drawing on material from a new book, Praying the Stations of the Cross by Kate Sonderegger and Peggy Parker, the class will explore the Stations of the Cross in depth. Parker will discuss the pastoral, theological, and biblical foundations of the Stations, review their history, and offer suggestions for introducing, or renewing, the practice in our parishes. Sonderegger will lecture on the Stations in preaching, prayer, and theology. Designed with parish staff and clergy in mind, the course is also open to interested lay people and seminary students.

About the book and authors:
Praying the Stations of the Cross – Finding Hope in a Weary Land
By Margaret Adams Parker, Adjunct Instructor in Religion and Culture at VTS, and Katherine Sonderegger, Meade Professor of Systematic Theology at VTS

Artist Margaret Adams Parker and theologian Katherine Sonderegger make the Stations of the Cross accessible for those new to the practice and offer compelling insight to those with long familiarity. Equally useful for individuals, groups, and congregations, Praying the Stations of the Cross can be used as an ongoing spiritual practice, a service offered in times of sorrow, struggle, or conflict, or a Lenten devotion.
