During the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the historian Josephus accounts that the Roman General Titus had as many as 500 Jews crucified daily.
Despite the fact that crucifixions were common, it seems that only one specific instance has managed to reach through time and change the course of history.
Some believe it was because on this particular cross of common beams and common nails, it was God himself who hung.
In the spirit of remembering Jesus, Church Simplified, together with Bonifacio Global City, present:
Walkway: Reflections on the Stations of the Cross
An interpretation of the age-old Christian tradition.
Fourteen interactive stations based on the gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are set up throughout the mall grounds to hopefully bring fresh insight to the events surrounding Christ’s death and resurrection.
We would like to present an online rendering of the installation exhibit Walkway: Reflections on the Stations of the Cross. Take time out from the business of your own life and ponder what Jesus went through to connect us to God.
This Year’s Art Theme
Kintsugi (n.) to repair with gold
The Japanese art of repairing pottery with gold or silver, recognizing the importance of history, visibly incorporating the repair instead of disguising it, and understanding that the process results in something more beautiful.
This is what God through Jesus is doing for all of us, making beautiful things from our broken pieces.
The cross redeems all things:
Your whole being.
For God was pleased to have his fullness dwell in him, and through Jesus to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:20
Repaired with gold, Redeemed through His blood.
The garden of totem pole heads represents all we have buried with our hurried judgments. The concept of justice is so pure and righteous, that expediently carrying it out compromises the very qualities that make it so precious.

#CSWalkway #CSWalkwayStation5 In AD 70, the Roman legions under the Emperor Titus destroyed the ancient Jewish temple in Jerusalem, leaving it in ruins. Because the temple had represented the epicenter of God’s presence on Earth, to this day, people come to visit the wall to air their grievances to God. They might mourn dreams that have been broken, love and loved ones they have lost, or the lack of justice in the world. This wall is known as the Wailing Wall. In this Station, we want to give you the opportunity to explore a unique kind of conversation with God, perhaps for the first time. This is an invitation to give God the weight of your pain. Bargain. Question. Wrestle. Hold God to His Word. He can take it. 📸 @joshua.azariah
I tried to hold back my tears when I saw this. It should have been us. You. Me. It should have been Ethan to carry the cross. But because of the love of Christ, He substituted our place. Instead of us, He took our place. Ethan has been so curious with who Jesus lately and the stations of the cross is the perfect opportunity to experience it. #cswalkway
