Holy Week Guide7 Minutes for 7 Phrases
Ecumenical, Artistic, Response to the Mysteries of the Holy Week
The Falls Church Episcopal in Falls Church Virginia asked other churches to respond to the last seven phrases that Jesus said in an artistic and unique way. Each response is in the form of a video that is no more than seven minutes long. I am inviting you to engage in a daily discipline during Holy Week by watching the presentations and meditating on their messages.
I was a seminarian at The Falls Church and was asked to create a video based on the words, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." It is the first video in the series, and the music for the video was created by my sister Lynda. I hope this journey through Holy Week provides you with some spiritual food as we prepare to celebrate the Easter season.
Peace and Blessings,
