The Way of the Cross

Lutherans aren’t too familiar with the Stations of the Cross.  It’s usually a series of images, accompanied by prayers, intended to lead us on a pilgrimage through the sufferings of Christ during passion week.  I found this Protestant version that I really like because it includes Scripture passages on which to meditate (remember for Lutherans it’s all about the Bible).  Maybe you’ll find it helpful as well.  You can also visit the link below.
