Reading: John 19: 1-30
This summer on Day 3 our campers will be exploring the story of Jesus’ crucifixion as they learn more about “Living in Lent.” The story of the crucifixion is not easy to read, but it is an important story. And, the story reminds us to do three important things:
If we constantly reflect on Christ’s sacrifice, give to others, and learn to forgive, how much better would our lives be? We would be Living in Lent all of our days! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: While rereading this passage, try going on your own “cross walk.” Take a walk, taking a Bible with you. Walk for a few minutes and then stop and read a few verses. Say a short prayer and then begin walking again. Repeat until you come to the end of verse 30. End with prayer, thanking God for Jesus’ amazing sacrifice.
