For over a year now I've been planning this special Good Friday meditation and reflection service.

Everyone who came had a wonderful time going from station to station and meditating on the passion and sacrifice of our Lord.

These are photos of the basic stations we had set up, but the actual evening service was very dark, lit only by candlelight.

Here are the stations we observed:

Casting Lots for Christ's clothing

Tasting the vinegar and bitterness He tasted for us on the cross.

Touching the crown of thorns He wore in our place.

Driving nails into the wood to remember the price He paid to set us free.

We dipped our hands into red paint and made a collage to thank Jesus for His amazing love.

We also tore cloth to symbolize the veil of the temple being torn in two for us.

Afterwards we sat and took the Lord's Supper together. Each person shared a song spontaneously, and acapella, we all joined in worship together. Then each person shared something in thanksgiving or prayed to thank Jesus for His gift of salvation and blew out their candle. We dismissed in darkness and silence.

It was a very powerful evening. We can't wait to do this again next year.
