The Way of the Light - Sunday, April 23rd
Last year, we began a new tradition on the Sunday after Easter, using the Stations of the Resurrection. Also called, Via Lucis, Latin for "The Way of Light," the new practice has characteristics similar to the Way of the Cross or Via Crucis (celebrated here on Good Friday) and can be prayed individually or in community. A Paschal candle or icon of the Resurrection is carried, rather than a cross.
The Via Lucis includes fourteen stations for reflection, from Christ’s resurrection to Pentecost. Our service includes twelve of these stations, as well as readings of the biblical narratives corresponding to each station, followed by silence, meditative prayer, and a hymn. And as is our practice each week, we will also celebrate Holy Communion.
We invite everyone to join us as we continue the Easter celebration at both our 9am and 11am worship services next Sunday. We will also welcome our new Director of Music, Dr. Craig Westendorf on this day.
