Stations of the Cross

All of the Gospels make it clear that the actual sentence of death on Jesus was delivered by the Roman prefect (governor) of Judaea, Pontius Pilatus (Pontius Pilate).1 Each Gospel also gives some account of Pilate as he confronted Jesus and his accusers and each implies some reluctance on Pilate’s part to sentence what he seemed to perceive as an innocent man to death. But, in the end, he does sentence Him.

How to make a Resurrection Egg kit

One of my favorite ways to share the Easter story with my girls is through a set of Family Life Resurrection Eggs that my mom gave us when our oldest was just a toddler. This set has been well loved, and at this point it has quite a few broken eggs and missing parts, so this year I decided to make a brand new set!
