This morning we have our interactive children's vigil with a brilliant script written by one of our folk.
There are at least two different three-hour vigil services i could go to, and I ought to go the evening one, as it's being hosted by a church new to the whole idea of shared Holy Week worship. I have a 'problem' with Good Friday evening services... Jesus is dead folk, dead and buried, the discpiles have fled... A Tenebrae could be very effective, but woe betide anyone who takes us back before the death or, worse, tries to pre-empt Sunday!
Enter the pain and bewilderment if you can. Spare a thought for all those who today will weep for lost loved ones, or who will be recipients of bad news. Don't rush to resurrection - it needs the empty, aching void of waiting if it is to be real.
