The Stations of the Cross in Contemporary Worship
By Mark Brosseau, 18 pages

Summary: For many in contemporary worship contexts, a lack of rootedness and history seems to be a significant liability. One response is to include ancient practices of worship. The Stations of the Cross are a good example of ancient worship that can be easily included in contemporary contexts. The author admits that "in starting this paper there was no preconceived idea of where it might end. In fact the journey started quite hesitantly as it was very unclear if there might actually be a positive ending possible or if the journey might end without any productive result. However, after investing a significant amount of time in reading and reflection, this outcome describing the Stations of the Cross for Today would appear to indicate it is possible for even a conservative protestant evangelical to reclaim a traditional church practice that might not have otherwise been accepted."
