The Stations of the Cross for Children has been prepared to help children engage a rich, centuries-old, devotional practice. The Stations of the Cross was developed by Christians to deepen their understanding of the pain and suffering Jesus endured so our sins are forgiven and we can enjoy the hope of eternal life. In some traditions, The Stations of the Cross is referred to as The Way of the Cross or the Via Dolorosa. Furthermore, the actual number of stations varies by tradition and has changed often over the years.
When preparing the materials for The Stations of the Cross for Children, the author was convicted by the Holy Spirit to include only those Stations that have a scriptural basis. The materials in The Stations of the Cross for Children include a script for including six stations inferred from the Biblical account. Original icon artwork (in color) is included for these stations, as well as icons that represent the Episcopal Church’s traditional fourteen stations. A notation is given when a station has been omitted in the script, with the icons found at the end of this script.
The cast involves two or more adults and responses for children. This presentation is intended for use by children and intergenerational groups and is 20-60 minutes in length, depending on the number of stations used. The purchase price includes full rights to reproduce material for everyone involved in the presentation.
