I was particularly moved by several of the stations. 'Jesus is anointed at Bethany' involved spraying yourself with some perfume and asking the question, 'What do I want to be remembered for?' Mk. 14.9. 'The House of the High Priest' presented a wall with a hanging orange, 'Guantanamo' jump-suit and a pair of hand-cuffs. Another, 'Peter's Denial' made the bald statement, 'I am Peter.' And the final station, 'Jesus is laid in the tomb', a large painting of the sealed tomb, had the accompanying words, 'All hope is lost. Jesus dies. Jesus is not the Messiah.'
Bunyan, Stevenage will most definitely celebrate Easter, and with baptisms, but in due course. For now, this Easter space helps to stay with the story from the inside, its building tension, its pain, its desolation and hopelessness. For me it was another meaningful and enriching Holy Week experience. Thank you Andy and friends!
