Social Justice Stations of the Cross - Good Friday, April 07, 2023

This self-guided walking meditation considers Jesus’ last moments on earth and the brokenness still present in our community.

Beginning at the red doors of Epworth United Methodist Church at the corner of Hopkins and Napa Streets, walk down the ramp and along the sidewalk on Napa street towards the Alameda. Turn right to head north on the Alameda to Solano Avenue. Turn right on Solano and proceed through the Northbrae Tunnel to return to Epworth via Sutter and Hopkins streets.
