Good Friday Tenebrae Service

Good Friday Tenebrae Service
A Service of Shadows
From the Gospel According to Luke
Good Friday, April 15, 2022, 7 pm
First Presbyterian Church of Ballston Spa
22 West High St. Ballston Spa, NY 12020

Participate in one of the oldest forms of worship in Christendom dating back to the fourth century. It is distinguished by the gradual extinguishing of candles, and by a “strepitus” or “loud noise” taking place in total darkness near the end of the service.

We hear the promise of salvation from the prophets and the coming of the light with the birth of the Holy Child. The light grows as we remember the spread of Jesus’ ministry. As opposition mounts, the light begins to fade, becoming dimmer and dimmer. We then wait in expectation for the light to once again blaze forth on Easter!
