Dr Rob James, the Canon Chancellor of Wells Cathedral, reflects on what the lockdown means for all of us, and how things might change after it ends.
A reflection on a reading for Easter Evening taken from Luke, Chapter 24, ‘The road to Emmaus’, given by the Chancellor, The Reverend Canon Dr Rob James.
For many centuries the ‘Way of the Cross’ has been a tradition of following every step of Christ’s journey, from his condemnation by Pontius Pilate to the time when his lifeless body is laid in the tomb. In Jerusalem, many pilgrims follow the Via Dolorosa which is associated, by tradition, with Christ’s final journey to Golgotha. At the Cathedral, the Stations of the Cross make a Jerusalem for us where we are, and, in normal circumstances, on Fridays during Lent, we would follow the Way of the Cross, led from station to station by one of the Cathedral clergy, reflecting and meditating upon each station as we go.
Given by the Chancellor of Wells Cathedral, the Reverend Canon Dr Rob James. Recorded in the Chapter House of Wells Cathedral.
