  • Recently, the men on Tennessee’s death row painted the Stations of the Cross. Christian tradition says these events happened leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. These stations have been used for hundreds of years to contemplate the death and resurrection of Jesus. While awaiting their own execution, these men contemplated the state-sanctioned execution of Jesus. Read about the Executing the Stations of the Cross Holy Week event held at First UMC, Taylorsville with Shane Claiborne and Rev. Joel Simpson.
