This Easter, we remember the cross. Christ entered our world to address the issues of sin, brokenness, and death. He bridged the chasm that kept us separate from God. But to do this, He had to endure humiliation, beatings, insults, agony on a cross, and ultimately, death. But there was hope beyond the grave – Christ’s resurrection on the third day – defeating deaf and restoring eternal life.
Artist Scott Erickson’s artwork “Stations in the Street” presents a stark and visceral representation of Christ’s journey to the cross. The work is meant to evoke strong feelings and invite you to not white wash Christ’s sacrifice, but embrace it and allow it to drive us to repentance and new life. This art gallery is currently featured at Ward Church, just outside of the sanctuary. The collection will remain through Easter Sunday.
