Easter Drama 2016 - Stations of the Cross

This dramatised version of the 14 Stations of the Cross is seen through the eyes of a Roman centurion. An experienced soldier, who has lost an arm fighting barbarians in Germania, he has been repatriated to peacekeeping duties in Israel.

Although he is a battle-hardened veteran, this soldier is deeply affected by what he has seen in this crucifixion.

The text is adapted from the original by Rev Richard J and Charlene Fairchild (Canada)
