Today and March 25 – Stations of the Cross – Throughout history, various forms of creative expression (art, music, architecture, etc.) have been used to glorify the Lord, reflect on his creation and honor his love for his people. The Stations of the Cross are one such expression – 14 artistic depictions of things that happened to Jesus on the day he was crucified as detailed in Scripture. Hear West Side artists tell of their creative process as they contemplated how they could bring that Scripture to life for our Stations display in the chapel. Howell Auditorium

The beauty of this truth taking root in us draws us from our neighborhoods to the nations and into all the world.
