Virtual Good Friday/Tenebrae

April 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Beth Prevo and Rev. David Wright via Zoom for a reflective and meditative Good Friday worship service.

Recommended scripture for this day is: John 18:1-19:42.

Below is a description of Holy Week from The Presbyterian Outlook

  • The Sunday before Easter (Palm/Passion Sunday) offers a synopsis of the week to come and captures the poignant paradox of the gospel. From the exuberant procession with palms the church quickly turns to the events of Jesus’ betrayal, arrest, denial, trial and crucifixion.
  • The fifth day of Holy Week (Maundy Thursday) celebrates Jesus’ example of humble service and extravagant love with the washing of feet and sharing of communion. “Maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum (commandment); at this service we remember Jesus’ new commandment to love one another as he has loved us.
  • The sixth day (Good Friday/Tenebrae) proclaims Christ’s death on the cross for the life of the world, calling us to join Jesus’ intercession for the world that God so loves.
  • Traditionally, no services are held on Holy Saturday. But in the evening of the seventh day the Great Vigil of Easter is celebrated. Like Christmas Eve, the timing reflects the ancient Jewish and early Christian understanding of the new day beginning at sundown.
The word “tenebrae” comes from the Latin meaning “darkness.” The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus’ burial.
