Contemplate Christ - a multimedia experience
By Pastor Mary Inman
Grass greens on the Coastal Range, apple trees flaunt blossoms, and devoted followers turn their gaze to the last few days of Jesus the Christ. CrossWalk is a self-guided, interactive, and multimedia walk through Jesus' final days.
Place your feet in the garden, at the trial and at the cross. In the garden, discover your own betrayal of devotion. Shoulder the guilt of your own failings there, and at the "mirror room". Wash your hands off any responsibility for his death at the trial, and drive your own nail of dissidence and offense in the cross. At each station read insightful and poignant messages.
It provides different yet meaningful experiences for all ages. 8-year-old Ethan experienced CrossWalk for the first time last year. "Jesus did that for me?" he queried. Lori Heineman, an administrator at the congregation, says, "I grew up celebrating the Stations of the Cross. At CrossWalk, I was so moved to be alone at each "station" and be able participate in meaningful ways, with wonderful visuals, music and lighting. I look forward to it every year."
"At the CrossWalk I came face to face with my apathy and indifference. I'm beginning to realize Christ's incredible love for me," said Larry Heard, who participated last year.
Roz Coffey, mother of three, ages 15, 12 and 9 said, "CrossWalk has been relevant and meaningful to my husband and me and to each of our children. The prisoner badge and number I am given at station two, especially affects me. I take it, strip the back off and stick it to my clothing, admitting my guilt and the resulting sentence of death. What a relief to eventually take off the badge and place it on the 'door to freedom', allowing Jesus to take my offenses."
Don Prewitt, founder of the Fine Arts group, CREO, and producer/director of CrossWalk, invites you to contemplate the sufferings of Jesus Christ as you walk and pray through the last hours of his life. Prewitt hopes you will leave this 30-minute experience with a new perspective on personal freedom and forgiveness.
