Asbury United Methodist Church


Please join Asbury United Methodist Church on April 2, for a special Good Friday service. Tenebrae is the Latin word meaning darkness. This prayerful service includes readings of John’s story of the trial, sentencing, execution, death, and burial of Jesus. After each segment of the story is read, a candle is extinguished. After the fifteenth reading, which confirms that Jesus had died on the cross, the last of the 15 lit candles is extinguished and a loud sound (strepitus, in Latin) is made to indicate the effect of the death of Jesus on the universe.
