A Fresh Take On Lent & Easter: Liturgy, Cards & Symbols for In Church and At Home Reflection



This Lent & Easter, we're exploring the theme of Pilgrims Walking the Way of Jesus. We brainstormed a list of items that symbolised the pilgrim's journey, then a liturgy was crafted around them. We also made a bag for each household containing one of each item.


Each week, people are invited to display a different symbol at home along with a card containing an explanation of the symbol, a reflection question, a short prayer and Gospel reference. The liturgy at church complements the at home reflections.


So, whether it's a feather, footprint, cairn, scallop shell, little bottle of dirt, balloon, palm cross, or a new shoot sprouting from tree rings, these symbols provides an opportunity to listen more deeply on our journey with Jesus.


Pictured is the symbol for week 4 - a scallop shell. For over 1000 years, as an act of faith, pilgrims have been walking the famous Camino Way to Santiago in Spain. Travellers wear a scallop shell to symbolise their pilgrimage. The lines of the shell begin at different points around the edge and then make their way inward. This mirrors the different places we begin our faith journey, and yet we all have the same inner destination.
