As a Lenten project, provide twelve- to fourteen-inch wooden crosses from a craft story to each student. Have the students design their crosses in the following way (share directions with students):

  • At the bottom of the vertical beam, engrave a passage from the Passion narrative in Mark 14—16.
  • At the top of the vertical beam, draw an image or affix an image you have collected of Jesus, the Suffering Servant.
  • On the horizontal beam, depict with an image or quotation that extends across the beam some of the sufferings of the contemporary world that Christ has redeemed.
