This Lent, plug in and meditate on the Stations of the Cross with a series of weekly audio reflections that help you link the divine with your daily life.
How might Jesus’ final hours feel different when juxtaposed with a walk in the neighborhood, or in a quiet corner at home, or while driving to pick up take-out? Pause a few times a week for scripture, prayers, and music led by the clergy of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon.
Podcasts are published every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning in Lent on the Trinity Sermons podcast - or listen in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, or wherever you listen (just search "Sermons from Trinity Cathedral Portland"). Listen & subscribe!
