GREETING

CALL TO WORSHIP

One: Today we gather to enter the story of Jesus’ betrayal and pain together.

Many: With heavy feet we enter the story. The sea, the earth, the sky, the woods, the current, the wilderness, all lead us here. We rest in God’s shadow.

One: We are here in the darkness remembering Jesus’ death.

Many: Slowly we open our hearts to grief and to our part in the story.

One: We are here in the darkness, following Christ, who says, “Take up your cross.”

Many: Deep in the darkness, we trust that death is not the end.

All: And there was darkness.
