“All his acquaintances, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.” - Luke 23:49
for Good Friday
let all stand still
Sun and moon
Let the ground
gape in stunned
Let it weep
as it receives
what it thinks
it will not
Let it groan
as it gathers
who was thought
By Jan Richardson, from Circle of Grace: A Book of Blessings for the Seasons
I hope you will join us in stillness tonight for our contemplative and creative Good Friday prayer stations for the whole family aired every 15-20 minutes on all our livestream platforms between 5 and 7:30 PM tonight. On Saturday, you’ll get another chance to move deeper into stillness as Arlene leads us in a 12 hour vigil using the wisdom and words of Julian of Norwich at the top of every hour, also on our live platforms.
And then…. (cue the trumpets) don your bunny ears, your fancy frocks, and your flowery hats because WOWEE DO WE NEED A PARTY OR WHAT?!?!! So let’s celebrate together that, despite all, Love Wins!
We hope to see you at 7 AM for our sunrise worship, 8:30 AM for our outdoor worship, 10 AM for our online worship. (Please remember to RSVP in advance for our outdoor services at uccaustin.org/outdoorworship.)
Love and blessings,
Outdoor Worship at 8:30am on 1st Sundays of the Month
