Many churches offer opportunities to pray the Stations of the Cross during Lent. Among them is Northside Drive Baptist. Come to the chapel, now through March 27, and simply follow the instructions attached to the walls and walk the Way of the Cross

The stations offer a special form of devotion which originated in medieval Europe when wars prevented pilgrims from going to the Holy Land. Artists created works depicting scenes of Christ's journey to Calvary to help pilgrims make a spiritual journey to Jerusalem even if they could not go physically. The faithful installed these sculptures, paintings, or images at intervals along a procession path, inside the parish church, or outdoors in order to have a devotional route in which to stop and pray at each station. .
