Good Friday service was solemn and touching. Knox United joined us for a small congregation of two churches' older folk coming together to share sacred times. The reflection, from Alice Watson, hit many heartstrings. She said things that we needed to have confirmed.
Our altar and area around the front was stripped of any ornamentation. All Maundy Thursday participants in the foot washing, were invited to help strip the altar of any ornamentation. It is part of life to acknowledge the dark times and the light times. This is how our altar (above) looked after the Good Friday service. And I was so happy to do the Easter Jubilation today. I took the Sunday School kids for a quick lesson on the real meaning of Easter, and then we went on a hunt for candy eggs to put in our baskets.
And so today we proclaim....Alleluia Christ is Risen Indeed.
