Facing the Cross: A Service of Scripture and Song
One of the things I'm going to miss most (among many!) during this unusual season when our church can't gather is our annual "Facing the Cross Service," a simple service we observe each year during Holy Week that recounts the last few days, death, and burial of our Lord through Scripture readings and hymns. Since we cannot hold the service this year, I have prepared some resources to help our church families observe the sacrifice of Christ in a similar way, and I pray these might be useful and beneficial for others as well. The service, including Scripture readings and hymns, lasts about 45 minutes. Full video of the service includes audio of the Scripture readings and piano accompaniments and lyrics of each hymn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoiL6_HYESI Service Order (PDF) – All the Scripture references and hymns are listed, so you could read the Scripture passages yourself [more]
