Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
Today is Good Friday, and our church had an evening service called Tenebrae, which is Italian for shadows or darkness. Tenebrae has been in practice since medieval times, and consists of meditation on Christ's sufferings, and after every song or reading, a light is turned out, until the entire building is almost dark. At the end, in the dark, a sweet teenager sang in a high voice "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord." Of course I wasn't, bit it felt just a bit like it.
“The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a Light dawned.”
