We return to a tradition of commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus at the time he likely died, on mid-afternoon Friday. We will meet outdoors around the old, wooden cross at 3 p.m., west of the church. This will be just off the large West Parking Lot.
A trumpet sound will call us to begin the service of remembrance, to include music, spoken word and prayer.
For those unable to attend, the service will be shown on Facebook Live at our page “Cargill United Methodist Church.” It also will be archived for later viewing. Visit CargillUMC.org.
The first recorded use of “guode Friday” was in a Middle English religious text from 1290. Calling a day “good” was a way to denote a time of holy observance.
Scripture focus: John 18: 1-19;42
