Lent & Easter, 2014

The featured photo in this post was part of a collaborative effort, together with artists from the Pasadena Foursquare Church.  This piece was a composite photo, done by Adam, representing Station #3 “Jesus is Condemned to Death by the Sanhedrin.”  Sarah painted a piece for Station #9 “Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem.”  The rest of the pieces were done by artists from the Pasadena Foursquare Church community.  On Good Friday, we displayed each of the pieces as a slideshow, timed with music and scripture reading, for a 1.5 hour time of reflection on each of the Stations of the Cross.  We held this service in Het Blauwe Huis, and were joined by people from our IJlife team, our spiritual community, and friends from the neighborhood.  This was a beautiful time of silence to contemplate the truth that Jesus did not come just to suffer for humanity, but to enter into solidarity with our suffering.  In this way, his suffering, death, and resurrection become a path of hope and life through our own suffering.  Being together in this way, was a wonderful reminder that we are not alone in this process.
