Jury Duty Today – Living Stations Tonight

So here I am doing my civic duty as a standby juror at the Bridgeview Courthouse! So far, I’ve had lots of time to get some writing done as I sit here waiting. We’ll see how long that lasts!

Tonight, I’ll be taking my sixth graders to the Living Stations of the Cross being performed by our eighth graders. It is a good Holy Week experience for them and is done very prayerfully. Here is the prayer aid we use for the Living Stations: Living Stations Prayer Aid. Here is the script for the Living Stations that the kids use.

If I have any time left with my students, I plan to do this activity on the 7 Last Words of Christ.

Another option I have is to use this activity, Looking for Clues, which focuses on the Good Friday Passion story.

As for now, back to doing my civic duty!
