Devotions for the Whole Family
Beginning Friday, March 10
Friday has always been a special day for Christians. It is the day that Jesus went to the cross, the day he died for us. It has been the custom of parish churches to commemorate Fridays in Lent by coming together as a community and walking the Stations of the Cross, an ancient devotion focusing on Jesus’ bearing the cross from the place he was condemned to Calvary.
Devotions for Adults: Redemptive Suffering
Why does God allow suffering in our world and in our lives? Why did Jesus say it was “necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Each year, those who walk the Stations of the Cross are reminded that God stands in solidarity with those who are hurting, and that he uses suffering for his redemptive purposes. This year, the meditations offered at the Stations will be on this theme.
Note that in 2017, with our Parish Hall under construction, devotions will not be preceded by a Lenten Dinner. Come directly to the church at 7:00 p.m. for Stations of the Cross, a meditation by a guest speaker, and Compline.
This year’s speakers are:
March 10 – Fr. Paul Klitzke, Rector of Ascension, Dallas
March 17 – Fr. Michael Mills, Rector of Good Shepherd, Dallas
March 24 – Fr. Greg Methvin, Rector of St. Philip’s, Frisco
March 31 – Dr. Victor Austin, Canon Theologian of the Diocese of Dallas
April 7 – Deacon Ryan Waller, Pastoral Leader of Uptown at Incarnation, Dallas
Devotions for Children
Kids from Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet in the Undercroft (church basement) at 7:00 p.m. for their own Lenten series, which will combine Bible stories and crafts.
