Create-A-Day: your daily dose of creativity #47 — Journey to the Cross


From now until Good Friday, I will be posting resources and inspiration geared towards Easter. Perhaps you or church will be inspired to do something creative to help others experience the breadth and depth of the Easter season.

Journey to the Cross is an interactive prayer walk focusing on the stations of the cross. It was done by the worship arts ministry of  Level Ground Mennonite Church in Abbotsford, BC. The entire service with participant directions, readings, audio and video walk-through instructions is posted on rethink If you’ve ever wanted to do Stations of the Cross but wasn’t sure where to start, everything is all laid out for you.

You can do a virtual “walk-through” of the service yourself right this moment here. There’s readings, audio files, videos, reflections and activities to do. The video under #2 The Fall is particularly powerful with a person painting while a spoken word piece is performed—definitely worth the watch!!

Blessings of ARTistry, CREATivity & BEaUty, Jody

What is Create-A-Day?  Just as One-A-Day® Vitamins help restore the nutrients we deplete in our bodies, so too do we need to refill, replenish and renew our creative souls. In 2015, watch for daily* posts to undergird your ministry; lead you to resources to nurture the creative spirit within; and draw you more deeply in worship of Jesus Christ. My goal is to provide you, the creative Christian, with over 250* resources to help you develop your ARTistry, CREATivity & capacity for BEaUty. Books, worship arts ministries, video series, websites, conferences—all geared towards artists, creatives, worshipers and people serving in worship and creative arts ministries. So, visit my blog every day* to see what creative resource I’ve hunted down for you. You can stay connected by following me on Twitter or Facebook. Or better yet, sign up to receive email updates by clicking the button to the left. We’ll watch the resources pile up as the year unfolds!

* I am a proponent of family time and Sabbath rest so don’t look for posts on weekends or Holidays.
