Good Friday

This week's Good Friday Five:

  1. Of all the gospel accounts of the crucifixion, which one stands out for you, and why? Matthew, I think. It's not really because of the crucifixion story, but it's the prayer after the Last Supper. The strength he displays through obedience speaks to me.
  2. Do you identify with any people in this account, how does that challenge you? Peter. Denial. Enough said. It's obvious how it challenges me.
  3. Hymns or silence? Hymns, although silence has a definite role.
  4. Post a poem or a quote that sums up Good Friday for you? "The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it." by Augustus William Hare
  5. Is there a tradition you could not be without, a tradition that makes Good Friday, Good Friday? It has become our tradition to attend our Downtown Churches Association Good Friday service. It moves from one church to another, so I have had the blessing of going to several different churches. I have spent several Good Fridays lately setting up for our church's prayer vigil, which is also very meaningful for me.
