We invite you to join us with lighting your own Christ Candle of Peace. Any candle will do. The light of Christ will shine on any candle.
Lighting of the Christ Candle of Peace
All: We pray for peace
in our hearts,
in our homes,
in our community,
in our nation,
and in our world.
Call to worship
Adam: As they Jesus away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, and they laid the cross on him, and made him carry it behind Jesus.
All: In the midst of the pain and sorrow of his life, Jesus needed help. We need help, too.
Adam: And so here we are, on this Good Friday, connected to one another over time and space, letting each other know that in the darkness we are not alone.
All: For the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.
