The events of Jesus’ last week on earth and in particular His victory over sin and death through His Easter morning resurrection are pivotal to our faith. It is through the deep waters of that week and the unexpected culmination of the empty tomb that we have salvation and are reconciled to our creator God. How will you set aside time this year to reflect on the significance of these events for your faith?
One option to consider is the Passion Week Prayer Path at the Pigeon Village Park. This self guided walk through 15 passages of scripture that recount the events of Jesus’ final week on earth will be available once again this year from March 26th through April 6th.
Thanks to the Laker Area Clergy including the following sponsoring churches: First United Methodist Church, Michigan Avenue Mennonite Church, Pigeon River Mennonite Church, and Salem United Methodist Church; the prayer path will be available along the walking path in the Pigeon Village Park. Simply head out to the park at the time that works for you. Begin at the welcome sign found on the north side of the parking lot next to the basketball courts.
When you arrive use your own Bible, a paper pamphlet available at the welcome station, or pull up the Bible App event on your phone (which will read the passages to you if you choose) to read the stories that go with each station as you walk along the path. Spend time prayerfully reflecting on these texts and the corresponding images at each of the stations.
We hope that this will serve as a meaningful way for you to prayerfully dwell with the significance of what Jesus did for you and for the world in that week. May God richly bless you in the weeks to come.
