Today we experienced a Good Friday experience at Ministerial Service in St. Paul's United Church, Boissevain. Let me describe it. We began with receiving a bulletin and a stone. Then a cross was processed to the front. We were encouraged to place our stones at the foot of the cross at various points in the service. The service was divided into parts: The Betrayals, The Committal and The Cherishing. The cross was eventually placed flat on the altar on top of two linen cloths. Around it were spiced elements placed. Then it was covered and left there following the service. Everything was laced with symbol and meaning. The hymns were truly reflective as we experienced emotion at the foot of the cross and the true meaning that Jesus has for each of our lives.
