When I was a young boy, our school would allow us to take the afternoon off on Good Friday to sit in Church between noon and three in the afternoon to reverently think about the Crucifixion of Jesus. I still remember sitting quietly in the pew and wondering what it all meant. Now that I know what it means, I still take time to sit quietly sometimes and think about it. That God became a man and died in our place to save us is breath-taking. The words of a hymn set to the old Irish folk song “Danny Boy” went like this:
I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary
To view the cross where Jesus died for me
How marvelous the Grace the caught my falling soul
He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.
Join us for worship this Good Friday, April 18, at 7:00 pm. It just may change your life!
