Good Friday Service of Tenebrae

A Good Friday of Tenebrae will be held at this Friday (April 6, 2012) at 7:30 pm (this is a change in the previously announced schedule). According to The United Methodist Book of Worship, “A Service of Tenebrae, or “Darkness,” is is based on a twelfth-century late night/early morning service and is an extended mediation on the passion of Christ.” This meditation includes sixteen scripture readings from the passion story according to the Gospel of  John 18.1-19.42, during which time fifteen lit candles are extinguished. This service does not include a sermon.
