Wednesday Festival

I believe that this Sunday has us halfway through Lent - or almost. Could you use a Festival to lighten your heart today? Join in!

Lorna sends us this intriguing post:

What comes first - believing, belonging, behaving?

Quaker Pastor is celebrating a Year of Jubilee, and shares three posts on the subject: The Jubilee Year, the Pre-Celebration Celebration, and OMG! Wishing you an early Happy Birthday this Sunday, QP!

Mitch says, "What do you do when a cell phone rings in a Bible study? Or the middle of the Sunday service? Set your phone to "ringer off" and surf on over to: Mitch Ross, Pastor's Husband, Geek Dad."

And a friend says: "I'd like to nominate Preacher Mom's post on wearing skin from March 6. It really touched a lot of us and needs to be shared." Count me among those touched.

And your editor? Well, I am wondering about the Stations of the Cross - while I know that many of our readers don't participate in that particular liturgical practice, some do or have. It's fairly new to me, though I'm a "cradle Episcopalian." I'm interested in knowing how others do it and how they benefit from it, spiritually. I'd like to hear from you!
Other posts you'd like to share - your own, others in the RG Ring? Please let us know in the comments!


  1. New ring member has Stations of the Cross - photos and audio here.

  2. I took a snow morning to write a column for the paper about asking for help

  3. I'm going to steal that cartoon!!! I like the Stations of the Cross found in a book from the Iona Community called, Eggs and Ashes...

  4. We use the stations of the cross from the Book of Occasional Services. We pray them every week at out midweek service--this is the third year we've done it, and to be honest, I'm having a hard time with it this year. I'm doing a kid's version that is really different in a couple of weeks. I'll try to remember to post about it.

  5. We do the Way of the Cross from Book of Occasional Services on Good Friday right before the Good Friday service. We begin at the door of the church - all this is weather permitting - walk down our driveway, turn back at the road and end up at the columbarium. The stations are set up along the walk. We also have a large wooden cross we take turns carrying.

    Good Friday was the day I found out my dad had pancreatic cancer so that is always in the back of my thoughts as we walk the Way.
