“Stations of the Cross” walk coming to Greensboro on Good Friday
In what quickly became a Greensboro tradition, the local Episcopal churches will again offer an outdoor “Stations of the Cross” walk on Good Friday, March 30 from 8-10am. The walk will begin and end at 301 N. Elm Street. Everyone welcome!!
“Stations of the Cross”, also known as Via Crucis, is a deeply spiritual time when people reflect on the major encounters Jesus had in His walk from His trial to His crucifixion. Jesus interacted with several people in different ways during this journey. This time allows us to consider how His actions relate to 2018 Greensboro, NC. By walking outside, through downtown, we are challenged even more to apply the lessons to our lives.
This is a child-friendly and family-friendly event designed to bring Spanish- and English-speakers together. In past years, the gathering has been racially and ethnically diverse, with people from a variety of church traditions, including those with no church background, participating and finding it meaningful. The walk is not about any specific church but about seeking our personal connection to God and deepening our relationship in community.
Btw: “Good Friday” comes from old English, King James English for “God’s Friday”. And “Maundy Thursday is old English for “a new commandment”.
