Transformation Stations

Posted on 15. Apr, 2009 by in Missions

Friday night we facilitated “Transformation Stations” at church.  This is the third year we’ve done it.  Basically, there are stations throughout the sanctuary where people reflect on different aspects of the crucifixion by doing tactile things.  So, at one station you hammer a nail into a board while asking for forgiveness for a certain sin.  At another station you tear cloth in half while thanking God for tearing the barrier between us and Him.  Yet another station has you hold a stick of thorns while reflecting on Jesus’ sacrifice.

The picture at the top shows the station where you light a candle to represent Jesus’ love being spread from another person to you.  It is neat to see the light grow brighter and brighter as more candles are lit.  What a picture of the Good News being spread throughout the world one person at a time.  Isn’t that what missions is all about?

    I’ve always love the Transformation Stations from the first year we did it with the youth up at the Kindlers. We were bummed we couldn’t make it this year. I think it’s a neat, tangible thing everyone should participate in leading up to Easter. Very memorable experience.

    I love this resource, we’ve never tried it all in one room, how well does that work for you? how many people are in there at a time? we are thinking of doing it differently this year, and just curious what your experience had been :)

      It works really well… we had about 150 people come through over two 2 hour periods. We hosted it in the sanctuary of the church with the stations spread out over the room, so no bottlenecks. Hope things go well for you!
