Each year on Good Friday, Christian congregations all over the world walk the Stations of the Cross, a commemoration of Jesus’ walk to Calvary.
In Walking the Way of Sorrows, writer/journalist Katerina Katsarka Whitley and artist Noyes Capehart provide a fresh resource for congregations and individuals who want to explore the meaning of these Stations more deeply.
Capehart’s stark and powerful blockcuts of the fourteen Stations are accompanied by monologues from the point of view of someone at each Station. Biblical references and a brief liturgy make this an excellent resource for individual or group devotions.
