Holy Week Story Stones

Being creative in the week before Easter


6. April 2020By Anja Knöpfli2 Minutes

Holy week is always an intensive time. In one week, we read, reflect, and remember how Jesus went through his worst time in the knowledge that Eastern will bring the best forever.
You will have specific family traditions for the Holy Week. Those traditions are important resources for making the time meaningful and unique for us at home, especially in a time of restriction because of Coronavirus. Another recommendation is to be creative.

Holy Week Story Stones is a way how I could be creative and devotional as an individual. The idea is to draw a symbol or to write a keyword on a stone for every day according to the Holy week bible reading.

Palm Sunday

Triumphal entry into Jerusalem Mt 21: 1-11 (Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-44; John 12:12-18).

Holy Monday

Cleans the temple Mt 21:12-13 (Mark 11:15-17; Luke 19:45-46). On the stone: It’s a broken table and a pigeon.

How to get started

What you need if you like paint own Holy week story stones:

  • Stones from the garden or a walk (in physical distance to other people).
  • Pens (I used Gel pens, India ink pens, and water-resistant pens) or paint.

I recommend that you clean the stones with soap, that not the dirt, sand, or earth on the stones are damaging your pens.
