As we enter into Holy Week, the busyness for church leaders sometimes means that it is difficult to connect with all that Jesus has done for us.  We are so busy worrying about services and technology and covid precautions that we can easily be distracted.  Perhaps these two devotional resources will help you to experience the power of Holy Week in a new way.

The first is an online Stations of the Cross coordinated by Rev. Ed Goode of the Presbytery of Cincinnati. The beauty of the photography, coupled with poignant and meaningful writings, provides a tremendous way to focus on Christ’s journey to Calvary.  You can participate here:   The Stations of the Cross (

The second is a thought-provoking and inspiring poem by Becky Lindsay, also from the presbytery of Cincinnati.  First published on the Presbyterians Today website in 2017, “Out of Chaos” still rings true today.  You can find it, accompanied by a portion of the Passion façade from the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, here.

May God bless you this Holy Week, and send out into the world to bless others.
