This gathering is what we call a TENEBRAE service. The word “Tenebrae” is Latin for “shadows”.
During this time together, we’ll be using increasing darkness to dramatize the increasing sadness of the days leading up to and including Jesus' death. There will be various scripture readings that take us through the events leading up to his death. When the final light is extinguished, the service will be over. Out of REVERENCE, and out of RESPECT for others, we will ask you to exit the service as quietly as possible – and reflect on Jesus’ death for you.
