Stations of the Resurrection

As familiar as many are with the Stations of the Cross, the Stations of the Resurrection are an extension of the story. Here at Wembley Downs we are introducing these Easter points of reflection for the whole Easter season through to Ascension Day and Pentecost, adding a new station each week. They will be placed throughout the church buildings.

Station 1: The Young Man in the Tomb (Mark 16:1-8)

WP_003057A diminutive portrayal of the three women of Mark’s Gospel account as they meet the young man dressed in white at the empty tomb. The small size of the frame against the white drape illustrates Mark’s uniquely understated account of the event. The women flee, saying nothing to anyone, because they are afraid. So ends Mark’s gospel.

What an anticlimax!

 

Yet the women were told that Jesus had risen and had gone ahead of them to Galilee (in Mark’s Gospel, the territory of stormy chaos and dangerous threat). There they would see him!

Is this a hint that the presence of the Christ is to be found in life’s unpredictability and confusion?

What is your Galilee?
