Stations of the Resurrection is a growing contemporary devotional, spiritual and liturgical practice. Encompassing both public worship and private prayer, this book travels with the reader from the sealed tomb to Pentecost through sixteen biblical episodes.
Using readings, reflections, art and prayers in conjunction with suggested hymns and ideas for producing your own stations, it offers a rich resource intended to refocus both congregations and individuals on the transformative joy, hope, grace and challenge of Eastertide.
“Richard’s writing and the images he has chosen to accompany each station work in tandem to lead us through the neglected cycle of the Church’s year, from Easter to Pentecost. After the pilgrimage of Lent, many people might feel exhausted at the prospect of starting another one so soon. With Richard as our guide, however, this Easter pilgrimage is a very gradual and gentle journey; the pace is as leisurely as the insight is rewarding; it is an excursion of heart and mind that will surely deepen our faith in the risen Lord.”
