Good Friday Service
April 7 @ 7 p.m.
in-person & online
Of all the questions in our series, this one remains the most unanswerable. Jesus quotes the psalmist when he cries out on the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
His final lament gives voice to all those who have been forsaken—those who suffer injustice, those who are abandoned, those who are unjustly convicted. Instead of trying to answer this question with logic or theology, we are invited to live it, to sit with it.
Sitting with this unsettling question unearths and unveils many more questions: What do we do in the face of unimaginable suffering? Can we sit in the silence of death and trust that God is there? Can we allow ourselves to feel the fullness of loss? Will we be in solidarity with those who suffer and grieve? What do we say with our last breath?
We will partner with MCC – Family in Christ for this service in the sanctuary. Worship with us in-person or online.
