Ann Lancaster's Ideas

Journey to the Cross

Our first Journey to the Cross was in 2012.  We are getting ready for our third year now and the thought came to me that some of you might be interested in doing this yourself on Good Friday.  I've posted pictures of the stations in the photos section so you can get an idea of how we set them up.  It's an interactive walk along the path that Jesus walked during His last days on earth.  I'd be willing to share our guide book that gives full descriptions of what each station represents, how…

Haven't been on this site much recently. Too busy with the summer conference. Finally getting caught up. Sounds like you're struggling like we all are. But, keep up the good work.

I don't know what happened, but I'm just now seeing these comments from last year.

Hi Ann,

 

  I have seen Abel's Field and thought it was very good. Also liked the movie "What if..." that Kevin Sorbo is also in. "A Christmas Snow" is good, family film. Two other movies I like are "Clancy" and "The Perfect Gift, which I think is outstanding. There are several Christmas movies that are really good. "The Christmas Card" and the Mrs. Miracle movies which are Hallmark are good family movies. Hope this helps.

Thanks Ann! It was very nice meeting you this weekend. Hope you are all rested now from the conference. So many good ideas to think about!
