Good Friday Worship Service & Narrative Play
The service for Good Friday was filmed by Rev. Evelyn Madison at Wehnwood UMC. During the service, we do a narrative reading of the passion narrative. I read the role of Pilate. if you listen, you may also be able to hear me play the flute. We focused the camera on a candelabra placed on a table. After each portion of the narrative is read, a candle is extinguished. The idea is that at the end of the service, the sanctuary would be left in darkness as we await the resurrection.
