APPROACH // LENT D::44

[ READING :: Psalm 22 ]

"O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer, by night as well, but I find no rest."

I participated in my church's Tenebrae service last night, you can read what my pastor had to say about it here. The service was done differently than any Tenebrae service i had ever been to. The traditional blowing out of the candles and reading of scripture was done but there was also a bunch of video’s played throughout the night. The video’s carried with them lot’s of imagery and lyric that drew you into this darkening that takes place in the room and in your soul as we approach good friday and the crucifixion of Jesus.

We embrace the shadows knowing that the light of the resurrection is right around the corner.

Here is one of the video’s that was played. Seems fittings and it’s U2, can you really go wrong.

? Do you feel the darkness of the shadows ? Are you embracing the desert as you approach the resurrection ? .:: Continue to remember that God wants to do important things in your life as you wander in the desert searching for that which you have not yet found ::.
